The issue of raw sewage being discharged into our rivers has become a serious local issue. A report in The Times newspaper on 8 November 2021 showed that the Southern Water treatment works is South Harting is one of the worst offenders in the country. Untreated waste was discharged into the River Rother over a period of six months.
The Parish Council Chair and our local County Councillor are planning to hold a meeting with all stakeholders as soon as possible.
The parish council are urging residents to get in touch about any problems experienced with sewage capacity. Please Contact Us to report any information or problems.
