Now the evenings are warming up I'll be going to the Ouse near Isfield or maybe Cuckmere Haven if the tide is right.

I used to swim in the Ouse a little above Isfield, at a place my son and I called the Gravelly Bank, just beneath the confluence of the Ouse and the Uck. I stopped when I discovered that 38 sewage treatment works drained into the Ouse and that at times of low flow in summer (like now) 60% of the water flowing through Barcombe Mills came from the SWTs. Since then I have become aware that it's not the sewage treatment works that often cause swimmers to become ill but the preponderance of cattle grazing on the banks... 10% of cattle poo is infected with e-coli 057, which persists in water and can make you quite sick.

I stick to rain-fed inland lakes and ponds now, ones without any sewage outlets anywhere near them.

You must be dreaming. I'd just keep you hanging on the telephone in rapture, until you had an atomic eruption.
