Misconnections are the scourge of our rivers and are everywhere, often called diffuse pollution. They may only cause low level pollution but any pollution is bad.

Here is a bit more info

http://www.thameswater.co.uk/help-and-advice/8198.htm


Walked my local Hogsmaill and spotted this, a classic case of a washing machine or some other domestic appliance flowing direct into the surface water sewer

Called the EA hotline on 0800 807060, ref 1075775

Interesting, I admit when I heard this publicised on the radio a couple of weeks ago I assumed this was a case of big business blaming consumers for minor issues in order to deflect fire from their own misdemeanours. I stand corrected!

Exactly the same as this one, http://t-a-c.forumotion.com/t685-sewage-flowing-in-to-thames-at-twickenham-bridge caused by one of my neighbours getting in some dodgy builders who didn't bother to check which drain was which.

Feedback from the EA:

'Definitely looks like a misconnection or blocked foul. I'll raise a hotspot request with Thames Water which means that that it'll be added to the list of outfalls for them to investigate. It doesn't look like it'll be having a major impact on the watercourse as it is intermittent and doesn't contain solids, but if it gets any worse please report it again and we'll raise its priority.'
