Friends of the Upper Wye

We are a grassroots community group that has formed to defend and champion our local river. The Wye is at a low ebb, suffering from severe pollution and the effects of climate change. Many factors are influencing the poor health of the river including intensive agriculture, the discharge of human sewage, industrial spillages and the increased frequency of severe flooding events. Algal blooms are starving our river of light and oxygen, damaging irreplaceable ecosystems and killing the river from the bottom up.
