We’d like to know what you think about Designated Bathing Water Status for the River Thames at Wallingford

The council is working with environmental charity Thames21 and volunteers from the local community to collect water samples and complete user surveys, to provide much-needed information on the overall health of the River, gain a better understanding of how popular the site is and understand the extent of any issues with the water quality.

Later this year, South Oxfordshire District Council will use the information collected during the project to inform an application to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for designated bathing water status (DBWS) for a mile stretch of the Thames with Wallingford at the centre.
