River Taff pollution
Readers will probably be aware of the sorry state of the River Taff, as it passes alongside Radyr and Morganstown. The recent floods dragged huge quantities of plastic bags and other items into the river - much of which is now caught up in the branches of the river-bank trees, which hang over the river.
This is both unsightly - and damaging to wildlife.
It is not, however, an unusual sight. This stretch of the river is constantly subject to pollution incidents - and hardly a day goes by without more plastic bags attaching themselves to the river bank.
As such, the Community Council has been working with Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to prepare an information leaflet, setting out what NRW is doing to tackle river pollution, in liaison with other organisations.
The leaflet also includes contact details, so that members of the public can contact NRW (and others) to seek advice - and to report any new pollution incidents.
We are pleased to publish the leaflet (below) - and we invite readers to make use of the contact details to encourage Natural Resources Wales to do all that it can to keep our stretch of river free of pollution.
