Pollution Watch: how you can help

AWPoll Watch

Anglian Water are asking communities to keep an eye out for sewage pollution in their local rivers and streams.The most obvious sign of sewage pollution  is the presence of sewage solids in the water, but there maybe other indications. These include:

• toilet debris such as toilet paper, condoms and sanitary products
• soap suds or a milky-looking discharge in the water
• grey coloured water
• a noticeable sewage smell in the outside air

If you see sewage pollution, please call us as soon as possible
on 03457 145 145.The  Operational Call Centre is open 24 hours
a day, seven days a week. Calls are FREE from a BT landline

The Ramsey Water Care project is talking to River Care at the moment to find out it there is potential for starting a River Care group in the area. River care volunteers adopt a river, clean it up and monitor its health. More on this in later posts
