Staycations will be hugely popular this summer, so the Environment Agency is encouraging people to check their Swimfo website to help them make the right choices when visiting rivers, lakes and beaches.
With details on 400+ bathing waters in England, there are plenty of places to choose from. High standards of bathing water quality are a vital boost for tourism so we’re also asking people to make the connection between the quality of the water they enjoy and actions they take at home or on holiday.
If you’re welcoming guests this summer or signposting places to visit, please help by promoting some simple steps:
- Only flush the 3Ps: pee, poo, paper
- Never pour fats, oils or grease down the sink
- Don’t pour waste liquids down surface water drains
- Bag and bin dog poo
- Take all litter home
