Sign the petition: stop sewage by taking back our water

This is a scandal. Every day, the private English water companies are dumping huge amounts of disgusting raw sewage into our rivers and seas. Privatisation has been failing since 1989.

The shareholders receive £1.6 billion a year on average - that money could be invested in water infrastructure to stop sewage. 82% of us support public ownership.

Let's make water companies work for people not profit.

Yes, I believe water should be in public ownership.
