Sewage pollution alerts

Use our real-time map to track sewage discharge and pollution risks around the UK.

This interactive map is our online version of the Safer Seas & Rivers Service (SSRS), tracking real-time sewage discharge and pollution risks around the UK. 

We monitor water quality at over 450 river and coastal locations so you can swim, surf, paddle or splash without the risk of getting sick.
