The River Loddon is a haven for nature and provides a fantastic habitat for many creatures, most notably a large array of fish. The Loddon is of great historical importance to Basingstoke and provides a pleasant environment for people to enjoy. However, as Basingstoke continues to expand, a great threat to the quality of the river has arisen. Maria firmly believes that the Loddon is a local treasure that needs to be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations, so she has been working tirelessly with Thames Water to prevent pollution from the Basingstoke Sewage Treatment Plant into the River. Maria’s campaign has proven successful, with phosphate levels falling significantly from previously unlawful levels. Maria continues to work closely with Thames Water to consolidate progress and ensure that the River Loddon remains a great place to be.
