Stephen Eades (Grenville 68)

Stephen writes, “Sea bathing quality is studied by Marinet, a voluntary marine and environmental organisation. A report issued in May 2020, Sand, Sea and Sewage, reveals that around one in three of England’s 400 official sea bathing sites are experiencing sewage pollution, some seriously so. These figures are worrying enough, without the fact that the true extent of the danger is being hidden by some very dodgy (but legal) monitoring practices, which eliminate serious sewage pollution events from the monitoring record. This is something that can be stopped but Parliament doesn’t have the will to do anything about.” More about this can be read on here.
