We ask that all FreshWater Watchers ensure that they are following the latest advice from their government and local health authorities regarding self-isolation, social distancing and movement. If local restrictions mean that you are not able to take part in the FreshWater Watch activities, please postpone them for as long as necessary - your safety and well-being are our priority. Please keep abreast of the latest government advice as this is changing frequently.
We are sorry to announce that following the UK government’s lockdown on March 23rd, all non-essential FreshWater Watch sampling is suspended in the UK until further notice. We will continue to follow government advice for any changes, and will notify you when you can start monitoring again. The Thames WaterBlitz will be postponed until Autumn 2020. Exact dates will be confirmed in due course.
