Save the River Usk Campaign

The River Usk rises in the mountains of mid-Wales  flowing 120 kilometers through stunning scenery with a vast wealth of flora and fauna to the strong tidal waters of the Severn estuary. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Area of Conservation. Nevertheless, in 2021 Natural Resources Wales found that the Usk had the highest incidence of phosphate pollution in all of the Welsh rivers. Fertiliser run-off from agriculture, human and animal waste and industrial effluent are all contributing to the rise of phosphate levels and dismal decline in the health of the river.

We are an all-ages group of individuals who have grown weary of the dismissive and neglectful way our rivers are being (mis)managed. From poo to poor agricultural practices, we believe every flagrant action of disrespect for our water and the environment should be documented, reported and ultimately prevented. This precious eco-system must not be irreparably harmed for the profit and ease of those who are responsible for it's rapid decline. Regulation and accountability are essential.

We know that together we can bring awareness. Good practices are available.

A friendly, vibrant, forward-thinking village in the South East corner of the county of Powys. We are surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
