Well not really. This is serious stuff. Today I was quite literally in the River Crane taking the monthly water samples, and checking the depth and flow of the river.
The water samples are collected and sent for analysis by Thames Water.
This is an important monitoring project, particularly after the two recent serious pollution event s in the river which, for a time, destroyed pretty much all the river-bourne wildlife.
After a couple of years it is beginning to return to some parts of the River, and let’s hope we don’t suffer any more nasty incidents!
