Steve Darling and local Lib Dem activists protesting sewage dumping

Stop Sewage Dumping

Raw sewage warning hits 8 beaches across Bay

Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Torbay Steve Darling has demanded action after Torbay beaches receive sewage warnings.

Recently, our Conservative MP failed to support a parliamentary amendment which looked to place a legal duty on water companies not to pump sewage into our waters.

Steve Darling, said: “It is shameful how the Conservatives are wilfully blind to this continuing blight on our waters in the bay. As someone who loves sea swimming, I believe with a passion that we need to be holding the government and South West Water to account.”

Water companies pumped sewage into our rivers and seas more than 1 million times over the past three years.

The Conservatives are letting them get away with it and want taxpayers to pay to fix the problem.

Water companies need to clean up their own mess and stop dumping sewage in our water.

It's time for sewage tax on £2.2 billion water company annual profits, a ban on water company executive bonuses, and it's time for the Government to start dealing with this issue properly.

Stop Dumping Sewage

Tax water companies' huge profits and fix our sewage system.
