I bathe in the river I want clean water. And I want to set the precedent for how our rivers should be managed.

We should be improving our waterways for wildlife and for humans. This pollution is unacceptable in the 21st century.

I can't believe Thames Water are dumping so much raw sewage into such a beautiful river. People already swim there, we should make sure it's safe for them and encourage more to do so.

I am signing this because I swim in the Thames /Isis at Port Meadow. England's foremost river deserves better treatment - for the benefit of all living species.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I was born in Oxford long time ago and every night my aunt used to take us for a walk following the river. Precious memories.
