Water UK response to Windrush Against Sewage Pollution (WASP) campaign report

Responding to the publication of the WASP report on wastewater treatment works a Water UK spokesperson said:

“Water companies agree there is an urgent need for action to tackle the harm caused to the environment by overflows. This report highlights the need for a new approach, which companies have also been calling for.

“To achieve change, we need to combine new investment with action on wet wipes and urban creep that are increasingly triggering spills. We’re also calling for Government, regulators, water companies, agriculture and other sectors to come together to create a comprehensive national plan to bring about the transformation in our rivers we all want to see.”
