On 3rd March 2022, River Action and over 20 NGOs, researchers and campaigners from the River Wye area sent a letter to Environment Minister, Rebecca Pow. The letter expressed our disappointment in the Minister’s visit to the River Wye. A visit which the Minister described as a “fact-finding mission”. And during which she failed to meet with representatives of the many local NGOs and citizen science groups that have been actively working towards resolving the pollution crisis on the Wye.
However, we have since received no response from the Minister. So, we have followed up with a second letter – urging again the Minister and other MPs to urgently implement our Plan to Save the Wye and to meet with thee group at the earliest opportunity to discuss necessary measures to tackle the river pollution crisis facing the River Wye.
