We've improved the resilience of our long sea outfall pipe at Cornelian Bay.
This pipe discharges treated and consented waste water from the washing and processing of vegetables into the sea.
In May 2013 our contractors Mott MacDonald Bentley (MMB) repaired a fracture in the pipe with a new section of plastic pipe. In order to further improve the resilience of the pipe we have now re-lined a 85 metre length.
We have another ongoing scheme in the Wheatcroft area which is being carried out by our contractors Morgan Sindall Grontmij on our behalf. For information about this work please visit
Latest news: From 8th January 2014 for two weeks we'll be undertaking some additional sampling from our Wheatcroft Sewage Pumping Station off Cornelian Drive. This work won't affect any local water or sewerage services but you may notice some additional odour in the short term. We'd like to thank local residents for their patience.
The base of the cliff at Cornelian Bay has been damaged by the December storm surge. We have shut the access down to the beach because it is unsafe, so please keep away from this area.
