Only Rain Down the Drain

Storm drains in the road usually drain straight to the river, with no interception or treatment to clean the water. The drains are there to take away rain water when we have sudden downpours.

Whatever you put down the drain will end up in the river. Paints, cigarette butts, chemicals or dog poo have no place in our drains or rivers. 

Our volunteer team are out and about the whole way along the river from Marlborough to Reading, marking drains with Yellow Fish plaques to remind people not to use storm drains for anything except rain water.


If you'd like to get involved please contact anna@riverkennet.org to find out how and take a look at our volunteer programme to see what dates are already in the diary.
