St. Michael’s Mount should be looking majestic. Not surrounded by disgusting water from a sewage overflow.
These shocking photos of Mounts Bay, Cornwall were taken earlier this year. Fast forward to September and it’s revealed the Long Rock CSO has been the worst in the UK for spilling sewage into the sea so far this year.
This isn’t acceptable in the 21st Century. This is why we encourage everyone locally to download the Safer Seas App so you get real time alerts for when the pipe goes off. You can also email South West Water direct and make health reports through the app.
You can also check your local water quality on the Surfers Against Sewage map here: https://www.sas.org.uk/map/
Lots of us grew up swimming in sh*t in Mounts Bay. 50 years on, it’s time things changed.
