Dirty Water – blue plaques

XR Malvern joined a UK-wide day of action unveiling blue plaques in Upton on Severn and Worcester, where we joined with other Worcestershire XR groups to highlight the impact on the River Severn of our local MPs’ voting record on the discharge of raw sewage. In Upton, the plaque reads: “Harriett Baldwin MP Voted to block a law requiring water companies to dump less raw sewage in our waterways and seas, 20th Oct 2021”. The 2021 records show the Upton on Severn overflow spilled sewage for a total of 1,407 hours. This is happening up and down the River Severn and all our major rivers and coastline.
