River Action launches legal crowdfunder to save the River Wye

River Action has been granted consent to pursue a legal challenge against the Environment Agency over its failure to enforce critical agricultural pollution regulations called the Farming Rules for Water

We will argue that by failing to prevent the spread of excessive levels of manure across agricultural land in the Wye river catchment, the EA has acted unlawfully by not enforcing existing rules for farmers. We are convinced that had these regulations been properly enforced, much of the horrific pollution along the River Wye could have been avoided. 


Today, we have launched a crowdfunder to help with the costs of our legal challenge. If you can, please share far and wide. Thank you for your support 💚.
