The main watercourses in this area are the Western Yar, Caul Bourne, Rodge Brook, Chine Streams, Gurnard Luck, and Thorness Streams.
An initial public meeting for the Eastern Yar was held in April 2014. The meeting did not identify any major issues with the water-courses that were not already being tackled within other groups.
Brighstone, Freshwater and Gurnard have produced Neighbourhood Development Plans but these do not identify any projects relating to water-courses.
A lot of work in the Western Yar falls within the remit of the Isle of Wight Estuaries Project.
