Historical Moment for Rivers?

We now have a new Environment Act. It’s not the best Act we wanted for the environment, but it is a better Act – and that is largely thanks to you.

If you’d sat us down a year ago and told us that The Environment Act would contain an entire chapter on sewage pollution, we wouldn’t have believed you. 

Thanks to your efforts we will see better reporting, transparency & planning. The government say they will enforce a material reduction in sewage pollution—and we will be watching and holding them to account.
