Nailbourne Bridge

Overpumping of Sewage

The sewers along the Nailbourne have become overwhelmed with the amount of water. Southern Water has begun pumping the sewers to relieve the burden.

At present this involves either pumping sewerage from one sewer to another or pumping the sewerage into tankers to be transported away. For the time being there are no plans to pump sewerage directly into the Nailbourne.

The River Management Group, Southern Water and the Environment Agency are monitoring the situation very closely and will provide updates should anything change.

Brewery Lane Ford Closed

The Nailbourne is now running along its full length. As a result of our section connecting with the Barham section, the levels have risen considerably and the KCC duty officer has closed the road at the Brewery Lane Ford.

The heavy flood gates were put in place on Thursday morning (13th Feb 2020).
