Dirty Water

Wave 4 – Sun, Sea, Sand & Sewage

Wave 4 of Dirty Water begins with a UK-wide banner drop on Friday 4th August. As everyone flocks towards water for the weekend, we let them know what they are heading to! On roads leading to beaches, marinas, swimming spots and anything else you can think of, we display the message “Sun, Sea, Sand & Sewage”, “Sewage Ahead” or similar!

Every river in this country is polluted.

Feargal Sharkey, Singer and Campaigner
