LOVE YOUR BEACH CAMPAIGN - PORTBALLINTRAE -
CALLING ALL NORTHERN IRELAND WAVERIDERS

Surfers Against Sewage’s (SAS) ‘Love Your Beach’ campaign is focusing on improving the water quality at Portballintrae's Runkerry Strand in Northern Ireland, by winning first time 'EU bathing water' designation.

Throughout the summer, beaches designated as bathing waters benefit from weekly water quality testing, improved litter management and better safety facilities that help the public better enjoy their time spent at the beach.

Portballintrae currently has antiquated sewerage infrastructures, which see the beach routinely suffer from poor water quality. If we can persuade the Department of Environment (DOE) for Northern Ireland that enough people use the beach for bathing and recreation to get it designated, then we can help improve water quality for all water users.

So, to help us in our
lobbying of the Department of Environment, we'd like you to sign our online petition. We'll present the signatures to the key decision makers at the end of the bathing season and crucially before the Government decides on the future of the beaches.

If you use Portballintrae's Runkerry Strand sign the petition here http://www.sas.org.uk/pr/2009/love-your-beach-4.php

It would be great if you could share this information with other people

dead sheep at Portballintrae - The sheep may have drowned in the river Bush, or fallen in further around the coast.And please don't call Portballintrae 'PBT'. It's a break, not an airport.
