On the hunt for misconnections

On the hunt for misconnections

Our Sussex team have been actively hunting down misconnections in Worthing for four months now as part of their work to improve bathing water quality, using cages and ammonia sample strips to track down misconnections from the outfalls at sea.

Drought Permit Issued For River Test

Today (Friday 6 September) the Environment Agency granted us a drought permit for abstraction from the River Test.

Under stringent new licence conditions we must stop taking water from the Test to supply customers when flows drop to 355Ml a day. The drought permit will allow us to continue taking water below this level.
