5 September 2019 River Dulais, Cwm Du

Our political action is backed up by a programme of work on the ground and in-river. We believe that this work is key to gaining traction with NRW and the farming bodies, who see that there is a concerned organisation trying to make things better. For the past 18 months we have been working to remove blockages and plastic debris from the Cennen, Mydyffi and Rhosmaen Dulais. As plastic pollution is in the spotlight at the moment, we use photos like this as much as possible to let locals and organisations know what is happening in our rivers and that we are prepared to do something about it. We are arranging to meet with the Cwm Du Community Council in the near future to get local residents on board.
