Water companies say sorry over spilling raw sewage

Jun 11,2020 10:20 am

By Esme StallardClimate and Science Reporter, BBC News

England's Water and sewage companies have made an unprecedented public apology for not " acting quickly enough" to tackle sewage spills.

They have faced mounting public anger over continued spilling of raw sewage into rivers and seas.

The companies Said on Thursday they were ready to invest an additional £10bn, But it could mean higher bills.

Campaigners welcomed The Apology But Said they would wait to see whether the promises delivered change.

The Apology was made by Water UK, the industry body which represents England's nine Water and sewage companies.

Ruth Kelly , Water UK chair, told The Bbc : " We're sorry about the upset and The Anger from the fact That there have been overspills of untreated sewage onto beaches and into rivers over The Past few years. We're sorry That we didn't act sooner, and But we get it. "

Alongside The Apology , the companies promised to triple funding available for sewer system upgrades, provide The Public with " near real-time" data on sewage spills and cut spills by up to 35% by 2030.

The Apology follows increasingly vocal criticism from the government, campaigners and The Public over The Number of times raw sewage has spilled into the UK's rivers and seas.

Companies are sometimes allowed to spill sewage following heavy rainfall to prevent The System becoming overloaded and backing up into people's homes. But the criticism has been That these spills are happening too often.

In 2022, raw sewage was dumped into rivers and seas - or 825 times A Day on average.

Swimming in Water where untreated sewage is discharged can lead to serious illnesses such as

Alan Lovell , chair of the Environment Agency , welcomed The Apology and efforts by the companies to rebuild Public Trust . " Now we want to see action and a clear plan for delivery, " He Said .

The Water companies - Anglian Water , Northumbrian Water , Severn Trent Water , South West Water , Southern Water , Thames Water , United Utilities Water , Wessex Water and Yorkshire Water - Said they were ready to invest £10bn to upgrade their sewage infrastructure and also establish 100 new swimming areas.

Marine conservation charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) Said they welcomed " the long overdue apology" But Said the Investment should not be paid for through higher bills.

" The UK public has already paid for Environmental Protection from sewage - But we're yet to see it. And whilst the Water industry rakes it in, this Investment pledged by Water UK must come out of Water company profits, not from The Bill payer, " Said Izzy Ross, campaigns manager at SAS.

The £10bn That the companies have committed will first have to be reviewed by the Water regulator, Ofwat, to determine what impact it could have on customer's bills.

The Environment Audit Committee chair Philip Dunne told The Bbc he hoped Ofwat would approve this increase in Investment .

That the UK's rivers were a " chemical cocktail" of raw sewage, microplastics and slurry.

" The Water and sewage sector is in listening mode and has provided a promising plan to tackle poor Water quality and take vital steps to improve the country's ageing sewerage infrastructure, " He Said .

Water UK Said The Initial funding would be raised from investors. It will be paid back by customers in small increments each year, it Said , with a " modest" impact on bills.

But Peter Hammond , from campaign group Windrush against sewage pollution (WASP), told The Bbc This Was another way for private investors to benefit from the UK's Water system.

" Instead of giving investors dividends, they give them interest on the loans Taken Out from them, " He Said .

Water UK Said the companies also committed to sharing Real Time data on how often sewage was being spilled into rivers and seas.

But this is not a new pledge, as last month this would be a legal requirement for Water companies by 2025.

Water Minister Rebecca Pow Said : " The government has put the strictest targets ever On Water companies to reduce sewage pollution. I Am pleased That they are now taking action to deliver on this - But there is still a great deal more to do. "

Water UK also Said companies would reduce The Number of sewage spills by up to 140,000, compared to 2020, when there were over 400,000 spills.

However, they are already required to cut the spills by 25%, or just over 100,000 events, by 2025. This Was achieved Last Year .

Water and sewage services in the UK are devolved and in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland they are provided by government-run companies. They have their own action plans to tackle sewage spills which are not included in Water UK's announcement.
