Limeburn Hill and Chew valley lake lake is surrounded by plastic rubbish and now and - no doubt filled with it as well.

I am copying a letter to both BANES and Bristol Water that I wrote to our MP - Jacob Rees-Mogg concerning the serious pollution risk from potential ever chemical and plastic waste within the BANES area - specifically Limeburn Hill. This is an increasing issues that hasn’t been dealt with for months and risks large amount of plastic entering Bristol Water source via Chew Valley lake .Some of thsi plastic is now being shown to have potential harmful risks to humans and currently there is no strategy for deal with it entering the water system. The lake is surrounded by plastic rubbish and now and - no doubt filled with it as well.

It needs a multi-faceted approach - so I am hoping BANES has a plan for ensuring that the roads remain clear of the rubbish where its causing the biggest risk ( on LImeburn hill as one example - marked below ) and how Bristol Water are dealing with it when it gets on their land.
