South East Rivers Trust are updating their Hogsmill Outfall Safari results for 2020 and need volunteers to help them report polluting outfalls and tackle misconnections. If you're interested in taking part, please book to attend the Outfall Safari training session here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hogsmill-outfall-safari-tickets-89543528103

The Outfall Safari method involves systematically surveying the entire length of a river to locate and score misconnected outfalls. This allows the pollution to be reported to Thames Water and the Environment Agency so that it can be tackled. You can read more here: www.southeastriverstrust.org/get-involved/outfall-safaris/
