Water quality in the River Thames has been linked to the activities
of mankind for centuries. In 1858 Parliament had to be suspended
because of the stench arising from pollution in the river, but today
MPs' noses are no longer necessary for the detection of water pollution; a network of sixty highly sophisticated monitoring stations relay live water quality data to the UK Environment Agency (EA) and other stakeholders.
Rising in Gloucestershire and flowing through the Cotswolds,passing Oxford and Windsor, the River Thames meets the North Sea after passing through London. With a length of 215 miles, the Thames is the longest river entirely in England. However, the water quality of the river is constantly under threat and for this reason, the EA's Matt Loewenthal believes that the River Thames and its major tributaries are more closely
monitored than any other rivers in the world.
