Just been warned that heavy rain is expected tomorrow, if you're out then please be vigilant and call it in 0800 80 70 60if you see any fish in distress, mouthing at the surface, due to sewage discharges, low oxygen, etc.

I have checked with the EA and they are on call 24/7 and ready to deal with anything, the Thames bubbler boats are also on call and ready.

Thanks Ed

And on the upside, the river will get a flush and move the fish down from the weirs.

PostSubject: Tidal Thames sewage overflow   Sat Jul 25, 2015 1:40 pm

Just come off the phone with the EA and there was a large raw sewage overflow into the tidal last night, as expected.

The dissolved oxygen is holding up around 25-30% saturation, so is a sag but not as bad as it could be.

If we saw it around 10% or below it kills everything.

The oxygenating boats are out as a precaution.

If you are down there, is full tidal expect to find plenty of sewage litter, so condoms, sanitary towels, areas of sludge, not pleasant, but unless very localised we escaped a major fish kill thankfully.

Will update on here as and when

Maybe not, contact from the EA at 1am and the DO has dropped to 20% with more rain tomorrow. Massively borderline now, anyone who can get to see the river barnes to Albert bridge or that area please do. Report it to the EA on 0800 8070 60. And of course any pics, reports back on here.

Update from the EA:

Myself and a colleague checked both banks of the Thames between Vauxhall and Blackfriars Bridge.

One small dead Eel seen at the Oxo tower, nothing else noted. Lots of what appeared to be live Gammerus shrimp seen so hopefully a sign that current water quality not too bad.

Saw several individuals combing the foreshore in different locations, none of whom had seen any dead fish.
Regards,

Just had a call from the EA and the do fell to just around 10% but no signs of a fish kill and it is rising slightly now. Still not good but seems may have dodged a bullet.
