On 15 May 2023 BBC reported: Few visitors know that London has 640km of waterways -- and there's a serious movement taking place to restore these 'blue corridors' to their former glory. Though most visitors to London think only of the River Thames, the city is a myriad of waterways. Old maps show a skein of rivers and brooks that provided 'blue corridors' traversing the city for centuries, providing both sources of food and recreation. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

... Gideon Corby, another Old Lea volunteer and habitat manager at the nearby Kingsland Basin Nature Reserve in Hackney, explained how planting reeds cleans the river by drawing pollutants like phosphates and heavy metals into their roots.

[Esther Adelman, co-founder of the Haggerston volunteer group] added, her voice filled with a mix of hope and quiet confidence: 'We hope eventually the Lea will become home to otters.'

... Creating these new wetlands also helps reduce flood risks across London, by providing areas that can naturally hold excess water from extreme rainfall increasingly linked to climate change.
