FOUND THIS, just for info


Fish killed after waste leaks into canal
By Charlotte Talbot
April 19, 2011

A WATER company was fined £12,000 for allowing untreated sewage to seep into the Basingstoke Canal, killing more than 200 fish.

The leakage was discovered on September 7, 2009, when an officer from the Environment Agency was called to the canal at Boundary Road in Woking.

Representatives from Thames Water appeared at Woking Magistrates’ Court on Friday (April 15), and pleaded guilty to one count of permitting polluting matter/waste to enter controlled waters.

The court heard the cloudy discharge, that smelt strongly of sewage, was coming from a surface water outlet.

Readings taken upstream of the discharge showed dissolved oxygen levels were at 44.8% and ammonium levels were at 3.24 milligrams per litre of water.

The reading near the discharge point was 5% dissolved oxygen and 33.27mg/l ammonium levels.

Fisheries officer Dominic Martyn also attended the scene at around 11.20am and found 35 dead fish in a 200m stretch, including roach, bream, perch and gudgeon.

By September 10, some 230 dead fish had been counted.

The day after the leak was found, aeration equipment was installed by Thames Water.

The next day the Environment Agency gave permission for the company to tanker several loads of clean water from Goldsworth Park balancing pond.

Work was going on at a foul sewer in Victoria Way where a blockage was found. Two drain rods, which were removed, had collected fat, oil and grease.

Prosecutor Rooma Horeesorun said the sewers were investigated but they did not show ‘any structural defects’.

She said: "It’s my concern that this could happen again. However, the defendant company would say they are maintaining this regularly."

"It’s the responsibility of the defendant to maintain the foul sewers and keep them in a condition so these matters are less likely to occur."

John Warrington, defending, said following the incident four lengths of sewer were cleaned. There will now be six monthly inspections at the site.

The company was also ordered to pay £5,388 towards the prosecution costs.

Loads of roach, some jacks and some good bream visible at the Horsell end of Woking this morning. No sign of any carp. Might give the bream a go next week.

Can't go Keith but would be interested in what they say. There is a good facebook page for the canal and it seems from there that the problem is getting better, but it doesn't seem to be much better between Woking and West Byfleet.
