Water companies pumped sewage into our lakes and rivers, including our own River Avon more than 400,000 times last year.
The Conservatives are letting them get away with it and want taxpayers to pay to fix the problem.
Water companies need to clean up their own mess. And the Government must bring forward legislation and enforce it, to ensure that they stop dumping sewage in our rivers and lakes.
Back the Liberal Democrats campaign calling for a 16% sewage tax on Water Companies’ £2.2 billion annual profits to improve our sewage system and protect our rivers and lakes.
