Final Straw Foundation Water Sampling

The team at the Final Straw Foundation have begun the next phase of water sampling, adding to their spatial analysis of forever chemicals in Langstone and Chichester Harbour, a collaborative research project which is taking place with Brighton University to analyse micro particulates in the harbours. They hope these results complement their forever chemical study and really inform people ‘what’s in the water-pre and post storm’. This study will provide updated results on what is happening in our harbours and if these micro plastic particles are increasing, staying the same or decreasing. The study will also assist in identifying on the type and source of plastic pollution and the difference present pre and post storm water discharges. We’ll keep you posted on the results which are expected early March 2024.
