London Waterkeeper

Defending rivers. Challenging polluters.

Protecting rivers

London Waterkeeper wants –

  • A flourishing Thames which is a truly swimmable river
  • Rivers in parks that are free of pollution
  • Clean, efficient industry that abides by all environmental laws
  • Regulators that do their duty and enforce the law

Only then will we have thriving rivers that are a boon to London.London Waterkeeper logo

London Waterkeeper is the capital’s independent voice for rivers.

We are a member of Waterkeeper Alliance, a global federation fighting for fishable, drinkable and swimmable water. The 15th anniversary video featuring London Waterkeeper is here.

Pollution in the Brimsdown, a river that flows through an industrial estate. Enfield.

No one has the right to pollute our rivers and yet we have normalised pollution and become complacent. The health of the Capital’s rivers is compromised – chronic pollution is a daily problem and the systems to tackle it are not in place.



The London Waterkeeper is Theo Thomas. Theo worked at Thames21 for 12 years. During this time he set up the ‘Love the Lea’ campaign to make members of the public aware of the problems facing London’s second river. Before that he was a BBC broadcast journalist in the East Midlands for 5 years.
