They acknowledge it was released deliberately, as they're allowed to do, in conditions of excessive rainfall as parts of the South-East have experienced recently.At the moment I‘d avoid that entire coast line if it‘s beaches you are after. Southern Water has reportedly dumped thousands of gallons of sewage “by accident “🤮🤮
Where does it go then? Is it pumped back to the treatment plant for processing?Like everything else it is a question of money.
People no longer want to accept what has been normal practice of discharging sewerage into the sea after heavy rain fall.
The water companies have a huge task to clean up the Victorian systems.
Here is an example of what is involved.......
Southern Water has built Europe’s largest storm water storage tunnel, 4.8km (3 miles) long, 6m (20ft) in diameter and 30m (100ft) under the seafront at Brighton, to stop pollution during storm conditions. Where once the overflow outfall discharged directly into the sea alongside Palace Pier water now drops down 100 foot shaft into the new storage tunnel.
Built at vast expense.
