Overpumping of Sewage

Nailbourne Bridge

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.
