Essex Rivers Hub

This week, our Thaxted group of river wardens have highlighted the need for the project. On the 6th of February on a usual survey, one of the wardens noticed a sewage pipe with a hole in it. If this had been left then a pollution incident would have been iminent. The warden contacted the parish council who got straight on the phone to Anglian Water who responded very quickly and the problem is now fixed.

This is a great success and shows how when we all work together to monitor our rivers, we can prevent the bigger problems that cause so much damage. A massive thank you to all of those involved.
