Despite years of investment, sewage and agricultural pollution still plague our rivers and oceans and the evidence that shows that we have a system that is willfully ignoring the worst pollution events in our country.
The water companies continue to legally pollute UK waters, exposing to harm all-water users, as well as our delicate Ocean ecosystems.
Out of 30 EU countries for coastal water quality, the Uk is placied way down at a pitiful 25th as 0ur water quality remains at the same dire level as it was in the 1990s.
Apart from the ocean, our rivers are also struggling under the pressure with just 14% meeting good environmental standards.
These natural spaces are crucial for the health and wellbeing of society and should be highly protected, not used as a dumping ground for big business.
It is made even more significant at present while the transmission of COVID-19, from raw sewage is unknown, and the fact that the 2020 testing programme has been abandoned.
Surely it is time for Government to end sewage pollution to protect UK waters and restore the rivers and ocean.
