So why are we making Yellow Fish?
Have you seen the yellow fish painted on the streets? We want everyone to know about the Yellow Fish Campaign! The Yellow Fish scheme has been created by the Environment Agency to raise awareness about sources of water pollution and the quality of water in your local streams & rivers, highlighting the damage caused by pouring oils, paints, solvents, chemicals or dirty water down highway gullies or surface drains. These drains will ultimately enter watercourses. Pouring waste liquids down drains can seriously affect your local environment………………….So if you see a yellow fish, it means
“ONLY RAIN DOWN THE DRAIN”
