Our officers have been monitoring the situation very closely following the water pollution incident involving the Southern Water Brook Road combined sewer overflow in Swalecliffe, which happened between 3.03pm and 7.19pm on Friday (6 August). Southern Water has completed some modelling work and has now confirmed to us that the impact of the incident will be for up to 48 hours and that it will reach Herne Bay. Previously they had said it would reach Studd Hill. Our foreshore team has already placed more public information notices across the extended area. The clear advice remains that you should not go into the water between Tankerton and Herne Bay. This advice will not be lifted until we are completely satisfied that the sea is safe. After our first post yesterday, many people were asking what we were going to do about this. Please be assured that work is taking place on the ground, as set out above, to keep our residents and visitors safe and we are in constant communication with Southern Water. It goes without saying that what has happened over the last 24 hours is completely unacceptable and we will be demanding an explanation from Southern Water about what has gone so badly wrong. But we have to be clear that we do not have any powers to enforce against or fine Southern Water. That responsibility sits with the Environment Agency. We are already in discussion with the Environment Agency about this incident so that we can understand how it happened and how Southern Water can prevent it from happening again.
