Water firms illegally spilled sewage on dry days


Recommended Posts

Thirteen years of the Tories, and every public service is falling apart, from our prison systems, police, schools, NHS and even basics absolute like Border Control  (we still haven't imposed our legally obliged import controls on goods and our asylum system is in crisis). We all know why- the Tories want everything privatised so that every penny of taxpayers money can go straight into their, or their donors, pockets with minimal investment in services. The Covid response was typical- billions of taxpayers money squandered, with many multi-millionaires created overnight for supplying non-existent equipment and services via non-scrutinised VIP lanes. Any notions of public service left politics with the rise of Populism and the Brexiters.

Three major water companies illegally discharged sewage hundreds of times last year on days when it was not raining, a BBC investigation suggests.

The practice, known as "dry spilling", is banned because it can lead to higher concentrations of sewage in waterways.

Thames, Wessex and Southern Water appear to have collectively released sewage in dry spills for 3,500 hours in 2022 - in breach of their permits.

Water UK, the industry body, said the spills "should be investigated".
