Flooding and water pollution
Why flooding and water pollution matters
Great Bedwyn has a history of flooding, and our sewage treatment works are regularly overwhelmed. In the last three years sewage has been discharged into the canal and on into the River Dun for over 900 hours - equivalent to over one month of continuous discharge. This impacts on water quality and biodiversity supported by the river. 83% of residents said they were interested in hearing about river pollution and biodiversity in our survey.
