"It's only recently that that's turned around, and the Mersey Basin campaign has had amazing results.
Despite the discontinuation last year of the Mersey Basin Campaign, which aimed to co-ordinate clean-up efforts, this is a crusade which needs to carry on - which is why United Utilities' newly-announced plan for a pounds 200m waste treatment plant at Liverpool's Wellington Dock is such welcome news.
Anglers and busy Liverpool charter boat skippers can thank the highly successful Mersey Basin Campaign, opened in the mid-1980s after various Whitehall attempts to restrain discharges of harmful waste into Britain's rivers.
In the UK, where the focus is on the River Mersey and the North West, the network is being established by the Mersey Basin Campaign. United Utilities, the water and waste-water company in the North West, is seconding a full-time project manager to the Campaign to manage the UK network.
Hosted by Mersey Basin Campaign and Northwest Development Agency with support from a number of industry regulators, the awards recognised the achievements of businesses demonstrating excellence in environmental innovation and management.
The Mersey Basin Campaign wants to hear from anglers who can tell them about the state of the River Mersey.
Thanks to the Mersey Basin campaign to clean up the river and improvements to the River Dee, more of these impressive creatures are seen in our local waters.
"But it is important we move with the times and build the new works so we can continue to provide the best level of service possible." The Mersey Basin Campaign to clean up the river ended last year.
The award, which was specially commissioned from recycled glass, was presented by Walter Menzies, chief executive of the government-sponsored Mersey Basin Campaign, and was received by HMG's marketing manager, Alison Patterson, who is also a member of the Irk Valley Project steering group.
These range from dominantly economic ventures--such as the first of the urban development corporations, which led to Liverpool Garden Festival in the early 1980s, and the current Liverpool Vision urban regeneration company programme, which has a waterfront focus within the city of Liverpool--to more environmentally focused schemes--such as the Sefton Coast Partnership, which dates from 1979 and was designed, inter alia, to protect and conserve one of the UK's largest sand dune systems, and the Mersey Basin Campaign, established in 1985 in an attempt to improve river quality, stimulate waterside development, and encourage the people of Merseyside to value and cherish their watercourses and waterside developments.
Ray Morrison, maintenance manager at Chester Zoo, won the Environmental Champions - Environmental Leadership section, while Walter Menzies, former chief executive of the Mersey Basin Campaign, was presented with a lifetime achievement honour by guest speaker, environmentalist and writer Sir Jonathon Porritt.
The Mersey Basin Campaign led the clean-up of the river and was only wound up this year after 25 years of improving water quality.
