The privatisation of the water industry has failed and it is no longer fit for purpose. 

In 2021 the water industry released 217,000+ hours of sewage into English and Welsh waters, the equivalent of just under 25 years worth of sewage.

As we endure our worst drought in decades and hosepipe bans are enforced across the country, water companies are losing 3.1 billion litres of water to leaking pipes every single day.

The government and the water industry claim that our archaic infrastructure is too expensive to fix, yet since 2010 the water industry has paid out over £20 billion in dividends to shareholders, with executives pocketing millions of pounds in bonuses per year.

We call for the government to nationalise the water industry once again. Greedy, profiteering companies are abusing this vital natural resource to make record profits, money that could be reinvested into upgrading our infrastructure to a modern standard.

This crisis has spiralled out of control, causing enormous environmental harm, huge damage to tourism and coastal economies and risking public health. Enough is enough.

So what can you do to help?

  • Sign our petition, share it on your social media channels and send it to your friends, family and colleagues.
  • Send an e-mail to your local MP, as well as the MPs on the list below, calling for the industry to be nationalised again.
  • If you share the petition on Twitter, tag them as well.

Together we can make a difference.
