The beautiful River Wye forms part of our local Herefordshire landscape. It is ecologically important and also brings tourism and financial gain to our county.
For many of us a strong silent river runs by. It looks beautiful and has lived forever. The truth is that this great amenity river is slowly dying. Farmland runoff and sewage discharge are harming the river’s ecosystem.
We need to heighten the publicity of the river’s plight and put pressure on government agencies to take immediate remedial action. It is man’s pollution of our river that is the cause.
