Long Rock Tops the Sewage Spill Charts in 2022

St. Michael’s Mount should be looking majestic. Not surrounded by disgusting water from a sewage overflow.

Brown sewage in the water around st michael's mount 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.

It’s why we also support and take part in Surfers Against Sewage campaigns on water quality to #EndSewagePollution. Find out more and email your MP here

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.
