Theo Thomas in the River Lea at Hackney Marshes

London Waterkeeper is the truly independent voice for the city’s rivers.

The registered charity has been founded by Theo Thomas, it’s Chief Executive.

It’s what London Waterkeeper is for that is important – rivers in parks that are free of sewage fungus. Homes that send their waste water only to sewage works and clean efficient industry that abides by all environmental laws. Only then will we have thriving rivers that are a boon to London.

London Waterkeeper is a member of Waterkeeper Alliance, a global federation fighting for fishable, drinkable and swimmable water. The 15th anniversary video featuring London Waterkeeper is here.

Pollution in the Brimsdown, from an industrial estate. Enfield.

No one has the right to pollute our rivers and yet we have normalised pollution and become complacent. The health of the Capital’s rivers is compromised – chronic pollution is a daily problem and the systems to tackle it are not in place.
