New Wales farming pollution rules ‘compel industry to change’

New rules on rural pollution are being introduced on 1 April to tackle river pollution are designed to have a “significant and ongoing” impact on agricultural incidents, said the Welsh Government. The rules focus on farmers’ use of slurry and fertilisers on their land.

The pollution isn’t just impacting wildlife, the treatment of water costs millions of pounds, all of which increases our water bills.

Iolo Williams, BBC presenter and naturalist said the announcement was “great news” that was “long overdue”.
