A legal challenge is being launched to stop water companies dumping sewage into the sea and rivers.

“A deluge of untreated sewage is being dumped by water companies into our rivers and along our coastlines, but the Government is failing to act.

“Good Law Project believes that the Government’s lack of urgency is not only dangerous, it is also unlawful on a number of grounds.

“This is why we are joining forces with Richard Haward’s Oysters and surfer and campaigner, Hugo Tagholm, to compel the Government to rewrite its Storm Overflows Discharge Reduction Plan to impose much tighter deadlines on water companies to clean up their act.”

It is much needed action and you can support it here
