This article is old - Published: Thursday, Mar 3rd, 2016

Cardiff’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee is asking anyone who is interested in the water quality of Cardiff’s rivers to contact the Council and contribute to a debate taking place on March 15 at 6pm in County Hall, Cardiff. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Scrutiny Committee will discuss a number of issues involving the water quality in Cardiff’s three main rivers and tributaries, including the ongoing work to keep the rivers clean, the challenges we face and to determine what impact the water quality is having on our local environment. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The main witnesses will be from National Resources Wales and Welsh Water, but the Committee is keen to hear from anyone that use Cardiff’s water ways for recreational activities to get in touch, so we can identify the potential issues so that they can be adequately addressed by the relevant Authorities. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillor Paul Mitchell, Chairman of the Environmental Scrutiny Committee, said: “We want the public to get involved in the debate, so any person or organisation that use Cardiff’s rivers for fishing, water sports or any other activity to get in touch and give your views on the state of Cardiff’s waterways. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“The debate intends to reveal if there are any issues, so we can work together to address the problems to benefit all those who enjoy using Cardiff’s waterways.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Environmental Scrutiny Meeting will take place on Tuesday March 15 at 6pm in Committee Room 4 at County Hall. Anyone wishing to give evidence, please call Richard Bowen on 02920 873606 or email rbowen@cardiff.gov.uk ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

All evidence needs to be submitted to the Council by Tuesday March 8. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
