Water levels at Maple Lodge Nature Reserve have fallen 32cm in just 2 weeks! This is the most sudden level drop ever recorded at this site. Other lakes and rivers in the Colne Valley have been experiencing low water levels.

Pollution can find its way into urban rivers via surface water outfalls (drains). The Zoological Society of London and Thames21 are recruiting volunteers to help conduct the Pinn Outfall Safari.
