A pipe bursts. Raw sewage rushes onto the beach. Not a trickle. A rapidly
moving wall of untreated human and industrial waste, chemicals, toxic
materials and debris. Eco-systems are destroyed. Human health is impacted.
Not to mention the smell.For locals in Crantock, Cornwall, this scenario
became all too real last Friday. *Take a look
While this incident was not a CSO* it highlights a broken system where lack
of investment and loosely governed laws mean water companies can get away
with pumping sewage into the environment.Help us put a stop to it. For good.

**A combined sewage overflow is a sewage outlet that carries both surface
water and sewage that is released during periods of intense rain when
sewerage infrastructure can become overloaded.*
