The Third Annual Review of the Sankey/Glaze LEAP reports on the progress made from 1999 against LEAP actions. The actions published in the LEAP supplement our everyday work on monitoring, surveying and regulating to protect the environment. Some of the key achievements for the Agency and its partners include: Completion of River Sankey and River Glaze Habitat Surveys; New processes reducing particulate emissions at Abram Alloys and PPG Industries Ltd; Successful stocking of coarse fish at Pennington Flash; New bridge constructed across Winwick Dry Dock; Completion of the initial stage of the Glazebrook Trail; Successful completion of the Sankey and Sutton Brooks A,B,C Sites, bridging study, provides a clear understanding of conditions and risks; The Tcampaign, aimed at reducing the illegal disposal of tyres by targeting waste tyre producers around the Wigan area; Manchester Mosslands and Rixton Clay Pits recommended as possible Special Areas of Conservation [SACs]; The Agency has secured agreement to upgrade the drainage system for the M62 widening scheme to include oil interception facilities; Campaign carried out to prevent and target illegal cable burning adjacent to Sutton and Hardshaw Brooks in Parr. The Annual Review seeks to look forward and identify future priorities to protect and enhance the environment - it is a living" document, and priorities will change over the course of the LEAP programme.
