Misconnected drains can lead to pollution of local streams, rivers and beaches, damaging wildlife and putting our own health at risk.
Our water environments are under more threat than ever. But you can help by ensuring that your plumbing is connected properly, meaning that wastewater and sewage does not drain directly into our rivers, but instead is properly dealt with at water treatment works.
ConnectRight is a new campaign that has been set up to raise awareness of household water pollution and to encourage homeowners to check their connections. You can link to their website here. On it, you will find information about water pollution, the campaign, and you can find out how to check your property for misconnections.
We can all make a difference to the environment. Find out how to do your bit to safeguard our streams, rivers, lakes and beaches for generations to come.
