The Government-proposed Water Bill could endanger our rivers

WWF calls for safeguards to regulate water abstraction

November 2013: A third of England's rivers are in danger of long-term damage that could ruin the country's environment and threaten wildlife if new legislation comes into force without important safeguards in place. WWF argues that the Water Bill going through Parliament will cause even more water to be taken out of some of the nation's most water-stressed rivers, reducing water levels to a point that would not support native wildlife such as the Water Vole and the Kingfisher.
