This socially engaged, scientific project aims to raise awareness about water pollution and bring attention to the national river water crisis in the UK. It’s said that 40% of our UK rivers are polluted with sewage water (WWF), this results in just 16% of waterways having a ‘good’ ecological status (Defra). This project has been important to raise attention to issues that often go unnoticed, particularly as housing developments have increased in the past few years, this leaves the infrastructure in many areas outdated and struggling to cope with the increased usage. These images have been captured along the River Wey which is part of the Thames Basin, this flows through Hampshire, Surrey and parts of West Sussex.
