Solution Search: A Summary of Surfers Against Sewage in the United Kingdom

The Safer Seas Service (SSS) is an innovative mobile app providing real time water quality information direct to the palm of your hand. It allows surfers, swimmers and all water users to find beaches with the best water quality, to avoid pollution and the associated health risks. The app provides vital public health information, and allows users to take action to campaign for cleaner seas. Users can email their Member of Parliament when there is a sewage spill at a beach in their constituency, calling for action to be taken to end sewage pollution. Health reports can be submitted to SAS to track health risk hot spots. Covering over 370 bathing waters across the UK with over 31,000+ users, the app has issued 898,300 notifications since its launch in 2019 with 3000+ emails sent to a total of 93 MPs demanding better water quality to keep us safe when using the sea.
