Surfers Against Sewage is widely recognised as the environmental charity that helped significantly improve bathing water quality standards right around the UK. Established in 1990 by a group of passionate, local surfers and beach lovers in the picturesque north coast villages of St Agnes and Porthtowan, the organization swiftly created a national movement calling for improved water quality UK-wide. This initial campaign led to water companies investing approximately £5 billion in sewerage infrastructures, and a dramatic improvement in the cleanliness of our oceans and rivers. Water quality remains a core campaign in 2012 with the alarming increase in sewage discharged via combined sewer overflows and the revised European Bathing Water Directive about to strip many UK beaches of their coveted standards.www.sas.org.uk
Pollution from sewers, farmland and city streets is a serious concern at a third of the UK's bathing beaches, and beach litter levels continue to be over acceptable levels at nearly 2,000 items for every kilometre on a beach. www.mcsuk.org/what_we_do/Clean+seas+and+beaches
