Anger at Sewage Dumping

18 Oct 2023

Residents are angry over the Conservative Government’s failure to stop sewage dumping in local rivers.

Official data shows that the Beech Hall Crescent sewer overflow discharged into the Ching Brook 61 times in 2022 and 116 times in 2021.

The Liberal Democrats have been leading calls for tougher action on sewage dumping - after toxic substances have been detected in otters across England; and large fish die-offs reported in the River Lea in June.

Local Liberal Democrat campaigner Alex Lewis, said, “It is time water companies stopped polluting our rivers and pay for the mess they have made.”

“Despite the failure of the Conservatives to act, the Liberal Democrats will continue to campaign to end sewage dumping in our local rivers and wetlands.”
