Petition Ban ‘permitted discharge’ of foul water into rivers

Stop utility companies from being able to discharge foul water into the rivers, other than in the infrequent times of heavy rainstorms.

More details

Utility companies are depositing more and more raw sewerage into UK rivers. Utility companies should have to upgrade/replace these pumping stations to accommodate the increase in connections from developments and ensure their modelling of the foul network has an allowance for misconnected surface water connection.
