We need to stop the outrageous levels of sewage pollution which devastates our local river environment, poses a risk to public health and contaminates local countryside. We are calling on the UK Government and our local authorities to address the ongoing issue of privatised water companies pumping billions of litres of raw sewage into the rivers and seas of the UK. There were more than 3,500 hours of sewage discharge into the River Mole and its tributaries around Dorking, Horley and Mole Valley in 2022. Under investment in infrastructure over many years has brought us to this sorry state. Something has to change.
By signing this petition, you are pledging your support for an obligation to be placed on UK water companies to invest sufficiently in their infrastructure to ensure a rapid reduction in sewage pollution year on year.
