Raw sewage in our local rivers

Posted in Community, Litter, Rivers on May 01, 2021.

In periods of heavy rain our sewers overflow raw sewage into our rivers and seas via Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs). One of our local volunteers sought out the CSO located near Huckford Viaduct. In 2020 that one spilled 74 times and ran for a total of 110 hours.
