River Friendly Shropshire

The county of Shropshire has over 3,846 miles of water course from the tiniest of brooks to the mighty Magnificent Severn. This arterial network supplies our drinking water and supports an incredibly diverse range of wildlife.

Maintaining river health comes with many challenges such as dirty road run off, chemical pollution, litter, sewer misconnections, plastics, habitat loss, invasive species, industry and development.

What can you do?

Befriend your local river, stream or brook. Undetected water pollution harms river wildlife. No matter what the size of your special watercourse it needs your protection.

You can find out more by using our downloadable resources which will help you to understand and identify water pollution and take timely action. Recording sheets are also available for you to fill in and email to Shropshire Rivers Hub.
