Waste water

Pressure on govt and Wessex water for investment in water infrastructure and education about what can/can't be disposed of down toilets. 

Why the contribution is important

Our current waste water systems are inadequate and there are frequent overspill events which means raw sewage goes straight into rivers and the sea which is harmful to wildlife and human health. With climate change we will have more intense periods of rainfall meaning increased overspill events and resulting raw sewage discharge. 

We also need water company investment to eradicate leaks and support residents in using water efficiently.
