Councillors Mark Roberts and Lisa Smart testing water quality in the River Goyt

Stop sewage

Water companies pumped sewage into our rivers and lakes for more 13,372 hours last year.

The Conservatives are letting them get away with it and want taxpayers to pay to fix the problem. With the latest legislation passed by Government, they even allowed water companies to pollute our waters unchecked until 2035.

Lib Dem run Stockport Council has become the first council in the country to launch an official Sewage Inquiry. The results will be published soon.

Water companies need to clean up their own mess and stop dumping sewage in our rivers and lakes.

It's time for a 16% sewage tax on their £2.2 billion annual profits to improve our sewage system and protect our rivers and lakes.

Stop sewage pollution!

I/we the undersigned call upon the Conservative Government to stop water companies from dumping sewage into our lakes, rivers and seas, by taxing the £2.2bn annual profits of water companies to improve our sewage system.
