Over the last 6 years there’s been over a million sewage spills in England. One every two-and-a-half minutes.

According to research by the Good Law Project, United Utilities dumped the most sewage in 2022. The impact of this is well known: risks to human health, marine life, and we have already seen some rivers in England declared ‘ecologically dead’ .

This cannot continue.

That’s why I’m asking you to sign my petition so that I can show the Government and United Utilities the strength of local feeling and tell them that people across Lancaster, Over Wyre and Fleetwood are saying enough is enough.

Tell United Utilities to stop dumping raw sewage
