The trouble with language

Having seen an especially fatuous press release about providing tap water to restaurant and bar customers from the 'Consumer Council for Water' (funny that a quango should take up the same battles as a government minister, isn't it?) I had saddled up Rosinante and was off to do battle until this piece of prose drew me up dead:

"The Consumer Council for Water was set up in 2005 to provide a strong voice for water and sewerage consumers in England and Wales".

Erm.....

They should do what I did (too late) and engage a dictionary.

What is the word for the service of removing sewerage then?
