Surfers Accuse UK Water Firms of Illegally Dumping Sewage

Updated on

Water companies illegally dumped raw sewage into the UK’s rivers at least 146 times this year, a campaign group called Surfers Against Sewage said.

A report by the group argued that most of these discharges, known as “dry spills” because they happen in the absence of rain, occurred in places where water quality was previously rated excellent.
