Not good news

Just spoke to Stu K at the EA and Thames Water dumped raw sewage from Maidenhead Sewage works into the loop, which leads into the Bray cut.  Evil or Very Mad 

Seems like some failure at the STW, surprise, surprise, lots of smaller dead fish sadly and still being found.

Luckily they were out testing aeration equipment locally so got on site very quickly but still sounds very bad.

More as and when as its a live incident

Raw sewage pumped into River Thames near Braywick

Raw sewage has been piped into the River Thames near Braywick.

The Environment Agency say that a 'blocked pump' at nearby Maidenhead Sewage Treatment Works has caused untreated sewage to be sent into the river, causing a 'noticeable impact'.

An EA spokesman said: "Environment officers are on site to manage any environmental impact from the incident, which has had a noticeable impact on the watercourse.

"We have deployed peroxide and aeration units to minimise any impact, and have made water abstractors downstream of the incident aware of the situation.
"Our officers will remain on site to fully assess the impact on the waterway, and to manage our response."

The Advertiser is awaiting a comment from Thames Water, which manages the site.

Do you live near that stretch of river? Get in touch with your comments by emailing Simon Meechan on simonm@baylismedia.co.uk or call 01628 678 228

Update 4.00pm:

A Thames Water spokeswoman said: "A blockage at our Maidenhead sewage works led to some wastewater spilling into the River Thames yesterday.

It was not raw sewage as it had been through the early stages of the treatment process but we’re working closely with the Environment Agency to minimise the impact on the watercourse.

We’re sorry that this has happened and will continue to do everything we can to clean up the river.”

Obtained by the TAC a few years ago, the list of sewage pipes that discharge into the Thames made for interesting reading.

The big surprise was how may sewage outfalls there are into the Lower and Middle Thames.

Anglers (like I once did) seem to have the impression that sewage into the river is restricted to the tidal stretches - it's not. Sewage pipes discharging into the Thames go way above Henley - Oxford if I remember correctly.

If anyone finds out the extent of the fish-kill, please post up what you know.

That's a lot of sewage into the Upper and Middle Thames. As I wrote above, not sure anglers realise this. I think the general feeling is that it is a problem confined to the tidal reaches.
