When we did sailing at the Westminster Boating Base last yr, they told us that it was usual after a heavy rain for there to be a fair bit of poo in the river. I think TULMJJ told me a story about a particularly fragrant afternoon of sailing she enjoyed last yr.
If you ever notice the Thames "bubblers" (boats that aereate the water - you can see the bubbles coming out behind them at work, you'll see they're on the river quite often, trying to combat pollution (of the poo and non-poo sorts).
...if you press it, they will come.
