The rivers of the South West have seen important quality improvements in terms of waste water since 1989.

While the Clean Sweep has focused on coastal waters, South West Water has also been investing heavily to support the regeneration of our local rivers.

Over the period, approximately £100million has been invested into inland waste water, ensuring our rivers and estuaries remain health ecosystems to support strong fish stocks and other wildlife that local industries rely on.

According to the Environment Agency's 2006 Chemical Survey, which measures the levels of pollutants in the water, 100% of the rivers in Cornwall and 98.91% of Devon's rivers were of good or fair quality.
