Plumbing and drainage misconnections pollute rivers and beaches throughout the UK. Check your property is connected right.  If wastewater or sewage is connected to a surface water drain you may be polluting your local river or beach.

ConnectRight is the public face of the National Misconnections Strategy Group. It’s a partnership of organisations who are working to reduce water pollution from drains and sewers.

Misconnected drains can pollute local streams, rivers and beaches, damage wildlife and put our health at risk. ConnectRight will work to reduce the number of misconnected properties in the UK and address other types of pollution from sewers and drains.

The campaign aims to reduce water pollution by:
  • Raising awareness and understanding of/about misconnections, sewers and drains and the environmental problems that they cause 
  • Helping property owners and professionals to check drainage connections and take action 
  • Ensuring new drainage is connected right 
  • Helping to develop and support effective practice, policy and regulation
  • Sharing information and evidence about the problem and supporting research and development of long term solutions
As a property owner you're responsible for fixing a misconnection. Contact your water company , local authority or a WaterSafe plumber.

Please visit www.connectright.org.uk today and check your connections!
