Surfers Against Sewage challenge Anglian Waters UV sewage treatment turn off!!!

by on Wednesday 27th January, 2010   2528 Views

UV, it’s Utterly Vital, all year round.

Recently SAS has learnt that Anglian water reduce sewage treatment outside the bathing season. The lack of UV sewage treatment dramatically increases the health risks to surfers and other waveriders from pathogens like E-coli 0157, Hep A, Gastro Enteritis and so on.

Anglian Water reduces UV treatment at both Cleethorpes and Mablethorpe. Both of these beaches support surf communities that deserve year round protection.

The Environment Agency stipulated that for a water company to reduce treatment they must prove an absence of water users and that the reduced treatment must not impact on water quality.

With your help we strongly believe we can prove a presence of water users.
SAS are calling all waveriders in the Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes area to take a camera to the beach until the 1st of May and capture the evidence we need to ensure you get the levels of protection you deserve.  Send your dated images to
