Harbour waters clear of sewage
Last December, sewage overflowed into the harbour as a result of the sewer collapse and obstruction at Line Wall Road. The Environmental Agency have been carrying out bacteriological sampling of harbour waters since early January 2012 to monitor sewage contamination. Following the completion of the repairs to the sewer the sampling regime confirmed that sewage overflows into the harbour have now ceased. The Government is therefore advising the public that recreational activities in harbour waters may be resumed.
The Environmental Agency will continue to sample harbour waters and will notify the public as soon as possible if any sewage overflows were to be detected.
