Industrial pollution doesn't seem to play a large part in the Commonwealth.
The  poisoning of the water seems more a result of the city's large
population than any residue of previous ages.

(Pollution plays a more significant role in M. John Harrison's far future,
but not "dying sun" series: Virconium. THE PASTEL CITY is one novel.  IIRC,
there are deserts of metallic rust, pools of corrosive agents, etc.  Which,
in turn, reminds me of Miyazaki's manga/anime film "Nausicaa: Valley of the
Wind," which is very much about pollution lingering into the far future,
changing society and the landscape.)
