Storm overflows

We’re committed to reducing storm overflows and have a dedicated Clean Rivers and Seas Task Force working hard to help us achieve this. The team are delivering Pathfinder projects across our region to learn how we can install innovative and sustainable solutions to prevent water getting into the network and causing storm overflows.
