Surfers deliver sewage petition

Surfers deliver sewage petition

Surfers have handed a petition to Guernsey States calling for a full sewage treatment works.

Two million gallons of raw sewage a day are being pumped into the sea near St Peter Port while work is carried out on repairing the mains at Glategny.

More than 20 protesters from Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) handed over the petition in gas masks and wetsuits.

They are angry that sewage pollution at Havelet and Fermain bays is higher than European Union guidance levels.

'Low investment' claim

Regular monitoring of water quality is being carried out by the Environmental Health Department.

Tests are being conducted regularly while sewage is being discharged into the sea at White Rock for five weeks.

At present, the results remain the same as last week when the Environmental Health Department issued a warning to bathers.

Surfers Against Sewage says it is dismayed at "the low level of investment in the sewage system".

On Tuesday, members of the group sounded out the local community for their views and visit some of the beaches affected by the sewage.

They also held a meeting at the Guernsey Yacht Club to outline their campaign to bring a full sewage treatment programme to the island.

SAS wants Guernsey to follow the lead of its neighbours in Jersey.

It was the first place in Britain to embrace full sewage treatment with ultra-violet disinfection in the 1990s.
