Wastewater pumping stations

Below is a list of wastewater pumping stations that have potentially overflowed during the current weather event. Some pumps have struggled to cope due to the very high volumes of stormwater infiltrating the wastewater network.

Raw sewage may have spilled from these sites. Some overflows were minor, however, in the interests of public safety, we have created this list and urged people to treat all surface water as potentially contaminated.
