Have you seen the Yellowfish yet? 

The Yellowfish Scheme has been launched In Barrow to raise awareness about sources of water pollution. Pollutants entering drains can cause pollution on beaches and affect bathing waters. Most road drains and surface drains are designed to carry only rain water. Pouring pollutants down these drains is like pouring them straight into the river.

It’s a simple reminder ‘Only rain down the drain’. Find out more
