Volunteers Required to Survey River Wandle Pollution

The Zoological Society of London is looking for volunteers to help them conduct surveys along the river Wandle to assess the level of pollution in the water. The project will help to compile a map of outfalls where pollution could enter the river. If you want to get involved, more details are below.

River Wandle Outfall Safari

The Outfall Safari programme involves searching for and assessing the level of pollution in water outfalls entering the river Wandle. The last time the river Wandle was surveyed was in 2019.

Volunteers are required to conduct surveys along the river, to look at pollution levels and points where sewage could enter the river. The surveys will be conducted from the riverside path, in areas where you can easily see the water. You can choose the part of the river you want to assess.

If you would like to get involved, the Zoological Society of London will provide training.

  • Date of training: Wednesday 8th March 10:30-12:30
  • Location: Grove Park in Carshalton.
