Dear Southern Water Services Limited,

Please can you answer the following EIR Request:

BACKGROUND INFO:

According to media reports water companies are required to provide 'improvement plans' covering storm overflows.

This article from the Independent claims:

Water companies will be required to explain why sewage spillages into rivers and seas are happening and what is being done to fix them under new Government plans.

Environment Secretary Therese Coffey is demanding that water and sewerage firms in England provide an improvement plan for every storm outflow, prioritising those dumping waste into swimming, shellfish and nature sites.

MY REQUEST:

1 - Please can you confirm if you have complied with the request and produced an 'improvement plan'?

Yours faithfully,

russell scott
