Prevent Sewage Spills into the Ottawa River

More than ten thousand concerned Ottawans have signed the petition to stop the intentional dumping of sewage into our local rivers. Please add your voice.

Every year hundreds of millions of litres of untreated sewage are spilled into local rivers. This closes swimming areas and increases the risk of sickness and infection.

Many of Ottawa’s older sewers carry both sewage and storm water. When Ottawa gets a heavy rain the volume is more than the wastewater treatment system can handle so the contaminated water is dumped directly into our local waterways.
