River Waveney Poisoned.

Post by Dances With Otters » December 13th, 2017, 10:54 am

According to the Guardian which could be said to be a cut above your regular gutter press, the River Waveney has an acute level of poisoning in the waterways.
Despite the strong currents at Yarmouth I fail to see how that can not affect the entire Broads network.
This is deeply disturbing, I thought the removal of the bins by the councils regarding the Broad's rubbish as industrial waste was bad enough but this is an environmental disaster.

It's the Wensum that flows through Norwich
( that's also on that article map)
before joining the Yare just above Whitlingham park and then flows down to Yarmouth. Hopefully ( although not good for the sea) the Bure being higher in level, the river bottom is higher I think which is why the Bure is an hour behind when the tide is flooding up Breydon, might help keep it away from n rivers? But did they not test the Bure? Or the Ant? If it's in the s rivers I bet my bottom dollar it's in the N rivers too!
Let the world flood! I live on a boat! :lol:

Either way if conservation is the name of the game? Then that is a total flunk.
