Southern Water expects storm clearances after thunderstorms

A WATER COMPANY expects storm sewers to be released due to today’s rain.

Southern Water understands that sewer runoff can release stormwater and sewage.

The company’s Beachbuoy app shows six storm outbreaks, all in West Sussex, that “could affect water quality”.

They are in Pagham, two in Bognor, Littlehampton, Shoreham Beach and Southwick.

It has now been confirmed that Shoreham and Southwick have been released into a bathing spot.

A spokeswoman for Southern Water said: “Extreme rain can overwhelm the combined sewage and drainage system in place in many parts of our region.

“Protecting homes, schools and businesses from flooding has led to some flooding, with excess water spilling into the sea. These runoffs are highly diluted and are typically 95 percent rainwater.

“We are committed to significantly reducing storm flooding and are implementing innovative pilot projects across the region to reduce the amount of precipitation entering our combined sewers by 2030.”
