Do you believe that HS2 is important enough to permit illegal pollution of your drinking water?
It has already happened! And seemingly HS2 are getting away with it. They are breaking the Water Environment Regulation (England and Wales) 2017 with impunity.
HS2’s own latest report details the release of huge amounts of Bentonite into our aquifer. It has been happening for months and is not being put right. In fact that is not possible 
It is illegal to make our drinking water sources worse even for a short time 
Right now six Drinking Water Protected Areas of the Mid Chilterns Chalk are being damaged with tunnelling and piling driving. 
HS2 has reassured us that the Bentonite leaks are all safe. The truth is they don’t know. They might also say the additional purification makes our water perfectly drinkable, but there are important reasons why legally binding regulations protecting our Drinking Water Protected Zones exist.
The only way to make our water safe to drink, is to increase the filtration processes by many times. The turbidity of the water is so high that some pumping stations will not be able to cope with this additional pollution and will have to close . This too has already happened. The result of all this is a high possibility of water shortages  whilst HS2 ploughs on through our beautiful countryside, ripping the heart out of our unique and precious water sources and leaking Bentonite as it goes.
Save Our Aquifer – Any damage to the aquifer from HS2 work is irreversible
HS2 have a track record of unlawfully hiding evidence of impacts on the water supply system in Hillingdon . They have proven we cannot entrust them with our water supplies. They have to be stopped.
Contact your MP to ask them to protect our drinking water and to scrap HS2
Enter your postcode in the box below to open a page where you can email your MP directly. Ask them to attend the HS2 debate on 13th September 2021. Mention the pollution of our fresh water aquifer, the unlawful addition of sediment, the release of Bentonite into the aquifer, ask them to protect our drinking water and to demand that our government scraps this hugely damaging waste of taxpayers’ money and spend it on rebuilding our economy instead.
