We'll soon start repairs to our long sea outfall at Wheatctoft.
This pipe discharges waste water from the washing and processing of vegetables 1.8 kilometres out to sea.
We know that the pipe is fragile in places which is why we're planning to replace the pipe in the long term. In the short term we'll be repairing a section of the pipe which has become damaged.
Cornelian Bay is rocky and the sea is dangerous in this area which is something we're having to consider as part of our plans. We'd like to reassure people that, whilst the milky coloured water is visible, it isn't a risk to health.
Latest news: We're working hard to obtain the licenses we need to carry out repairs to the pipe. We are hoping to secure the license within the next 3-4 weeks. In the meantime you may notice us working at Cornelian Bay to prepare the site for the repair work.
