Victory For Fish Legal Over Water Companies

A press release has come in from Fish Legal… Fish Legal has won a major victory in our groundbreaking case against Yorkshire Water Services Ltd and United Utilities Plc, which was the culmination of the six year legal campaign for greater transparency within the water and sewerage industry which we have reported to members before. The Upper Tribunal ruled last Friday that water companies in England & Wales are ‘public authorities’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information Regulations (2004) and so are now under a legal duty to disclose environmental information they hold to the public. The implications of this test case, which has been fought over the past 6 years, will be felt industry-wide. It could also affect companies operating in other privatised industries which have a similar role managing resources and services of public interest, such as the oil, gas, electricity providers and the Royal Mail. Fish Legal often wants to know about sewage pollution and over-abstraction that damages rivers and coastal waters to help us fight legal cases on behalf of our member clubs and fishery owners. This judgment means we now have a right to get this information directly from the water companies themselves. In the past, several companies refused to provide any information when asked, whilst others expressly refused to disclose information in line with this law. The Judges in this case ruled they were wrong to do so. Any concerned individual or organisation now has a right to the environmental information held by the water and sewerage companies. The water and sewerage industry causes significant damage to the environment every year. This... read more
