Environmental Case Study

South West Water have been fined £28,000 and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £3,935 after failing to respond speedily enough to a sewage spill caused by a blockage at the Milford Park pumping station, Teignmouth, Devon. Sewage accumulated in the pumping station and in the surrounding sewers until it spilled from 3 locations – the rugby club combined sewage outflow which leads into the Bitton Brook for 18 hours, from Milford Park into the Teign Estuary for 16 hours and also a manhole adjacent to the rugby club. The sewage spill even affected the nearby beaches at Teignmouth with 2 bathing water beaches failing the water quality testing standards that day.
