Jail water firm bosses over pollution, says watchdog

The Environmental Agency is awarding star ratings for water company performance ratings. Southern Water is only one star (the worst category) and Thames Water is just two star.

The agency said water firms’ performance had declined to the worst seen in years.

Although this report doesn’t mention Brexit, it cannot be a coincidence that the absence of EU standards and obligations has allowed the companies to behave irresponsibly. They obviously aren’t frightened of the UK regulations or penalties!
