De-silting of the lower stew pond

We the undersigned petition the council to De-silt the lower and upper stew ponds before all the water life die due to the level of silt

For many years the lower stew pond on Epsom common has needed to be de-silted and for years the council have ignored it of said they have no money.
The water level is so low now that the fish are boiling in the water during the summer months, to the extent that 575+ died last year.
Epsom and Ewell council have shown a blatant disregard to the safety of the water eco-system, and also gross negligence towards animal life. If something is not done urgently the fish kills will become a regular problem and leaving the stew pond barren.
So please sign this petition to help the fish and regenerate the area back to the beauty spot it used to be.
