Protecting Quainton’s streams from pollution - Can you help?

This March River Thame Conservation Trust is looking for help to mark out road drains with yellow fish markers to spread the key message ‘only rain down the drain’ to protect local stream from pollution.

Road drains play a vital role in keeping our roads clear by draining away rainwater to nearby rivers and streams. However this direct connection means that pouring pollutants down them is like pouring them directly into a watercourse. All too often substances such as soap, oil, paint, cleaning products and litter make their way through road drains to streams and rivers where they can have a devastating impact.

Can you help us install markers (All PPE supplied) to dissuade people from pouring things they shouldn’t down the drain or to drop off information leaflets to households? Join us on any of the following dates:

  • 10:00 – 12:00, Thursday 12th March
  • 13:00 – 15:00, Thursday 26th March
  • 10:00 – 12:00, Saturday 28th March

If you’re interested in getting involved please email Hannah (hannah@riverthame.org). More information on the project can be found here: https://riverthame.org/our-projects/watery-behaviours/yellow-fish/
