Only Rain In Rivers

Only Rain in Rivers is a campaign that seeks to engage Londoners in helping to clean up their local open spaces and waterways by making simple changes at home and at work. Around 10% of properties in London are accidentally polluting their local waterways through bad plumbing; when our waste water is sent down the rain pipe!

This campaign is a pilot project and three catchment partnerships are part of this campaign. The area within the Crane Valley Partnership that is focussed on for this pilot project is teh River Crane in Twickenham. The other partnerships involved are the:

  • Brent Catchment Partnership
  • Roding Beam & Ingrebourne Catchment Partnership

Londeners are asked to pledge to check their properties for misconnected plumbing and to think about what they flush down the toilet.

Wihin the Crane catchment, Thames Water has also made available data on the known polluted surface water outfalls (PSWO) they have on their database.
