Dirty UK waters – level 3
Thousands of Britons took to the sea and rivers to demand an end to sewage pollution by irresponsible water companies and big businesses that are damaging the ocean and jeopardizing ecosystems.
The organized demonstration took place at 12 bathing spots around the UK.
The organization Surfers Against Sewage has been leading the fight for better water quality for over 30 years, raising awareness, calling out polluters, and advocating for changes in legislation. However, the situation remains critical, with sewage pollution still prevalent. The demand is to end sewage discharge into bathing waters and significantly reduce overall sewage discharges.
Pollution affects rivers, seas, and the health of water users, leading to illnesses and environmental degradation. The inadequate sewerage system and lack of investment from water companies contribute to the crisis, along with weak enforcement of regulations.
Difficult words: jeopardize (to put at risk), prevalent (still occurring or happening), discharge (to release).
