Surfers Against Sewage - Not just Surfers, Not just Sewage
The most common diseases caught from surfing or swimming in sewage-polluted water are gastroenteritis (often resulting in diarrhoea and vomiting) or ear, nose and throat infections. As well as these, pathogens in sewage such as Hepatitis A and E. coli 0157 can cause much more serious, potentially life threatening, illnesses.

The first thing to do is go to the doctor! Explain that you have been in water that may have been polluted and they should be able to tell you if this is a likely cause (and prescribe any medication you require). Fill in our on line medical response form, which asks for details about when and where you entered the water and what your symptoms were (this information is kept confidential). It is not necessary that you have been to the doctor to fill in this form - all information helps.
Blue Flag - F A Q
A major part of water pollution is caused by potential health-threatening micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses. There are three main sources of contamination: Someone somewhere is always carrying pathogens (very small disease-carrying organisms) in his or her body, whether they make the person ill or not. Human pathogens get into the waste water via toilets. All animals carry a quantity of micro-organisms in their digestive system that are potentially threatening for humans.
Surface sources of drinking water are easily prone to pollution because of the direct flow of pollutants. Pollutants either get dissolved in water or adhere themselves to the soil particles, and reach surface water sources through runoff and erosion. Groundwater is also at risk from pollution. Groundwater pollution mainly happens from the pollutants that are soluble in water and percolate to the groundwater source with the recharge.
Water Dept./Utility Billing--FAQs
The rate for water is $3.45 per 1000 gallons. There is a minimum charged based on meter size. For a single family home, the minimum is 5,000 gallons or $17.25 per quarter. Funds pay for both the cost of water itself and the maintenace of the mains and other distribution components. The Village sewer charge is $8.40 per quarter plus $ 0.15 per 1000 gallons. This charge pays for maintenance and operation of sewer lines (not for sewage processing).
The water you use doesn't go away. Whatever goes down the drain ends up at the treatment plant. While the plant effectively removes "settleable" and organic materials, it is not designed to remove certain chemicals and metals. When toxic chemicals get dumped or rinsed down household drains, they pass through the system largely untreated and end up in the Bay where they may threaten sensitive aquatic life.
Raw sewage and flood waters contain bacteria and other micro organisms which can be extremely hazardous to human health Children and pets are especially vulnerable. Absorbent and porous materials that have come into direct contact with contaminated water may times cannot be restored. You DO NOT want to track contaminated material into unaffected areas or turn on your air conditioner of heater as this can spread contaminants through the structure.
Spa & Beauty Salon in Edinburgh - PURE
There have been reports of people catching diseases through waxing, although this is apparently extremely rare and is as a result of cross-contamination between the wax pot and spatulas in salons where the spatulas are re-used and not disposed of between clients. Although PURE have used the wax pot system in the past, we always used fresh disposable spatulas for every client.
Ocean Water Protection Program: Frequently Asked Questions
Polluted runoff and untreated sewage released into bathing waters may result in swimmer exposure to pathogenic bacteria, viruses and protozoans. These disease-causing organisms may be present at or near the site where the polluted discharges enter the water. The following table lists the types of organisms and the diseases (or symptoms) they may cause. Gastroenteritis, usually with fever; less commonly septicemia (generalized infection -organisms multiply in the bloodstream)
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
It can lead to fish kills, destruction of wildlife habitat, excessive siltation, loss of aesthetic value, impaired recreational areas, and contaminated drinking water resources.
TB frequently asked questions
The TB germ is usually spread in the air. It is caught from another person who has TB of the lungs. The germ gets into the air when that person coughs or sneezes. But only some people with TB in the lungs are infectious to other people. Even then, you need close and prolonged contact with them to be at risk of being infected. Sputum smear positive cases stop being infectious after a couple of weeks of treatment.
