35% increase in sewage dumps by Severn Trent last year.

28 Mar 2024

New figures released by the Environment Agency have shown that Severn Trent which covers our 3 constituencies discharged sewage a staggering 60253 times last year, a 35% rise compared to in 2022. 

We Liberal Democrats are calling for tougher action against sewage dumping in local rivers/beaches, including replacing Ofwat with a tougher regulator. The party has also called for a ban on bonuses for water company bosses whose firms have dumped sewage into waterways.

Conservative MPs have consistently voted against measures which would have helped to tackle the crisis, including our two conservative MPs, Michael Fabricant and Kate Kniveton.
