Paw Pals Kathryn becomes Water Ranger

Tuesday 23 December 2014

The Water Rangers scheme is an exciting new environmental community engagement project which sees Northumbrian Water enlisting volunteers to help them understand the condition of many of our vulnerable water bodies.

We are thrilled to be working with Kathryn Bell from Paws Pals Saltburn who became a volunteer with us and attended one of our Water Ranger training sessions last month.  Kathryn has been a great asset to the scheme and, along with her furry friends, is helping us to patrolling ‘public access’ routes within areas that need a little extra attention on a weekly basis. While they are on their walks they will report the condition of the water course to us so that any issues can be resolved as soon as possible.

The scheme has attracted many different types of people from animal lovers like Kathryn to engineers, retirees, students and various outdoor users all of whom care massively about their environment and ecosystems. Like Northumbrian Water these volunteers believe that the environment is our customer and that it should be given first class service. Water Rangers make a positive contribution to the environment in our local areas and volunteering is a great way to share your enthusiasm, skills and ideas whilst having fun and meeting like-minded people.
