09-Nov-2011
Lewisham company charged for causing acid leak into a stream.

The Environment Agency has prosecuted Streamline Environmental Services for causing hydrochloric acid to leak into a stream.

Streamline Environmental Services of Brownhill Road, Lewisham appeared at Greenwich Magistrates’ Court on Monday 7 November and pleaded guilty to the offence which took place at the Ferriers Lane Estate but which polluted the River Quaggy in Lewisham. The company was fined £5,000 and ordered to pay costs of £5,321.72 as well as a victim surcharge of £15, totalling £10,336.72.

The court heard that the firm had been contracted by Mitie Ltd to descale two of the boilers using powerful hydrochloric acid. The acid was poured into the boiler for two days and left overnight for the descaling to occur. On the third day the defendant discovered the surface area was flooded; and a leak was evident from the base of the boiler. A tank was then placed under the leak and the remaining fluid drained off. The surface area was then washed down without any neutralising material added and a pipe was put from the boiler into a drain which led to the outfall pipe into the River Quaggy.

The resultant discharge into the river killed fish and invertebrates (including freshwater shrimp that lived in the river) and turned the water reddish brown. A member of the public reported seeing environmental damage in the river as far as the eye could see in both directions.

Peter Ehmann of the Environment Agency said: “This incident could have been prevented or substantially ameliorated if the company had taken proper precautions before and after the leak to avoid potentially lethal chemicals leaking or being washed into the drain and ultimately into the river. The offence was aggravated by the defendant’s behaviour which fell far below the standard expected of a competent contractor handling such hazardous substance.”

“We take this sort of incident very seriously. A lot of hard work has gone in to improving the River Quaggy as a vital habitat for fish and other wildlife over the years and this pollution is a significant step backwards. We hope this serves as a reminder to all those who work with potential pollutants to take their responsibilities seriously. The release of acid has devastated wildlife, which could have been prevented had proper procedures been in place.”

Anyone who sees pollution in a watercourse should contact the Environment Agency’s Incident Hotline on 0800 80 70 60.

PostSubject: Water company fined for sewage overflow   Mon Nov 21, 2011 5:53 pm

Anglian Water Services has been fined a total of £32,000 after two separate pollutions into the same Lincoln stream.

Sewage and trade effluent twice escaped from the drainage system and ended up in the Roaring Meg Drain causing a serious impact on invertebrates, Lincoln Magistrates’ Court heard today (Mon). The company was also ordered to pay full costs of £3,974.

The stream flows through a residential area where local families, children and dog walkers regularly use the grassed area alongside and where there is a public footpath.

The first pollution was in April this year when a blockage in the foul sewer on Woodhall Drive led to trade and sewage effluent getting into the surface water drain through an access hole, which should have been capped, ending up in the stream.

Three months later there was a further pollution when the foul sewer became blocked with rag, fat, old rods and wood at Nocton Drive causing the foul sewer to surcharge upstream and get into the surface water drain. Surface water drains are designed to carry rainwater away from the streets and into watercourses.

Both incidents were reported to the Environment Agency by members of the public, said Mrs Claire Bentley, prosecuting.

She told magistrates there was a history of the foul sewer system overflowing into the surface water sewer at the site, polluting the stream. Between July 2004 and October 2008 five pollutions were attributed to blockages in the foul sewer and two formal cautions were issued to Anglian Water.

“The defendant was aware of the vulnerability of the system before the 2011 incidents and failed to take appropriate measures to stop it happening again,” she told the court.

“Following the first incident the company failed to prevent the second which happened only three months later.”

70 meters of stream was affected in the first pollution and 50 meters in the second causing a serious effect to the invertebrate community. Even pollution tolerant true worms were completely destroyed where the sewage went into the stream, the court heard.

An Anglian Water manager said after a previous pollution in 2005, work was done to secure the caps on the surface water sewer. After the 2008 pollution a survey was done of all 87 manholes to identify weak spots and missing caps replaced and others secured. They also started a fortnightly visual check and increased the frequency of jetting the system.

In mitigation, the company solicitor Mr Paul Loughran said that following the incident the company had carried out modelling work of the sewer network and had determined that foul and surface water sewers cannot be separated as in cases of flooding the foul sewer offered additional relief.

The company is trialling the use of level monitors within the manhole to provide early warning of increases in sewer level that could indicate a blockage. It is also raising awareness through a fats, oils and grease campaign.

After the hearing Environment Agency officer Anna Ganiford said: “These pollutions have highlighted a problem which the company has taken steps to resolve..

“Our aim is to work closely with water companies to reduce pollution and improve water quality.”

Anglian Water pleaded guilty to:

Offence 1:

On or about 6 April 2011, you did cause the entry into inland freshwaters, namely the Roaring Meg Drain a tributary of the Nettleham Beck, of poisonous noxious or polluting matter, namely sewage and trade effluent, at Searby Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Contrary to Regulation 12(1)(b) and regulation 38(1)(a) of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 Fined £14,000

Offence 2:

On or about 4 July 2011, you did cause the entry into inland freshwaters, namely the Roaring Meg Drain a tributary of the Nettleham Beck, of poisonous noxious or polluting matter, namely sewage and trade effluent, at Searby Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Contrary to Regulation 12(1)(b) and regulation 38(1)(a) of the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010 Fined £18,000

Oil spill into River Lark. Environment Agency work through the night to limit damage

24-Nov-2011

A spill of around 5000 gallons of oil into a surface water system has polluted 2.5km of the River Lark through Bury St Edmunds. Environment Agency staff worked through the night to limit damage to the river.

A spill of around 5000 gallons of oil into a surface water system has polluted 2.5km of the River Lark through Bury St Edmunds. Environment Agency staff worked through the night to limit damage to the river.

The Environment Agency was alerted at 10pm on 21 November that there had been an oil spill in the Eastern Way Industrial Estate. Officers went to the scene immediately to establish the extent of the spill and found that oil was entering the River Lark upstream of the Compiegne Way road bridge.

Overnight, the team spread absorbent pads to try to prevent the oil spreading further. Yesterday (22 November), more absorbent materials were put in the river to try to soak-up as much oil as possible.

Environment Manager Kevin Rutterford said: ‘This incident highlights how polluting oil can be and why it’s important to ensure oil is stored safely to prevent it escaping into the environment.

‘We’re making sure as much of the oil as possible is cleaned-up, but it has affected a long stretch of the Lark and we will be keeping a close eye on the river for some time to come.’

Oil has travelled 2.5km downstream affecting the River Lark through Tesco’s car park, Tollgate Bridge and into the Suffolk Golf and Country Club. The combination of thick reeds and absorbent pads is holding the oil back at that point and so it should not travel any further.

Environmental damage so far appears to be limited, but a clean-up operation to remove as much oil as possible from the surface water system and river has been started and is likely to continue for several days.

The Environment Agency has also been collecting samples and is conducting an investigation into how the spillage happened. The Local Authority, water users and downstream abstractors have all been informed of the spill.

Homes and businesses storing oil must ensure it is stored securely to prevent oil escaping into the environment. For advice on how to store oil please call the Environment Agency on 03708 506 506.

If you ran a business as incompetently as Thames Water run theirs, either the government or the local authorities would revoke your licence to trade.
Still maybe Thames water shareholders are replete with government ministers.

Thames Water ordered to pay over £24,000 for sewage spill
15-Dec-2011

A water company which caused untreated sewage to enter the Arford Stream and Lakes in East Hampshire killing hundreds of fish, was yesterday (Wednesday 14 December) ordered to pay a total of £24,015 by magistrates.

Thames Water, based in Reading, admitted two charges of failing to notify the Environment Agency of the discharge and was fined £16,000, made to pay £8,000 costs and a £15 victim surcharge by Aldershot Magistrates’ Court. The charge was brought under the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2010.

The court heard that on 5 December 2010 the Environment Agency received a report from a member of the public about dead fish in the Arford Lakes. The Lakes are on-line on the Arford Stream and downstream of the Arford Sewage Pumping Station which is operated by Thames Water. The Company was contacted and they confirmed that an incident had started on 2 December. Environment Agency officers visited the site on the 6 December and noted dead fish, including chub, carp, sticklebacks and roach. The discharge from the pumping station had stopped, but officers found sewage fungus and debris in the stream, along with a strong smell of sewage in the air, the lakes were also grey in colour.

Water quality samples were taken to check levels of ammonia, suspended solids and oxygen. The measurements indicated sewage pollution at levels consistent with the death of the fish. The sewage reduced the levels of oxygen in the water and officers deployed two aerators, alongside Thames Water’s three, to pump air back into the lakes. Hydrogen peroxide was also added to help release oxygen into the water.

During the investigation the Environment Agency were informed that Thames Water had a number of alarms indicating pump failures at the site. When pumps fail or cannot keep up with the flow in the station the sewage level will rise until it reaches a point where it will overflow to the stream. The site permit does allow for emergency overflows when the pumps fail, but it also requires Thames Water to notify the Environment Agency of the overflow. Thames Water failed to give this notification and it was not until the 5 December that the Environment Agency received a call from a member of the public that there had been an incident. As a result, the actions taken to increase oxygen levels were too late for the many fish that had already died.


Neil Martin, who investigated the incident for the Environment Agency, said: “This was a distressing incident and it was upsetting to see so many fish either dead or gasping for life. The area is popular with anglers and is fished regularly and we found that over 300 fish died in the lakes.”

“Water companies have a statutory duty to comply with the conditions of their permits, which Thames Water had not done in this case. It sends a clear message to other companies that if you fail in your environmental responsibilities you may be prosecuted.”

Notes to editors:

Charges

The defendant was charged with 2 offences of failing to comply with or contravening an environmental permit conditions, namely failing to notify the Environment Agency as soon as practicable (1) when there is potential for operation of the emergency overflow in the event of failure or breakdown of the pumping station and (2) after receipt of an overflow telemetry warning that operation of the emergency overflow has taken place at Arford Pumping Station, Arford, Hampshire, between 1 December 2010 and 7 December 2010, contrary to Regulation38(2) of the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2010.

Water company fined for discharging poor quality effluent into a Devon stream

21-Dec-2011

South West Water was today ordered to pay £8,734 in fines and costs for discharging poor quality effluent from a sewage treatment works at Tedburn St Mary near Exeter.

The case was brought by the Environment Agency.

The company is allowed to discharge treated effluent from the works into the Lilly Brook, a tributary of the River Culvery. The effluent must be of an acceptable standard and comply with the site’s environmental permit.

On March 16, 2011 the Environment Agency discovered the treatment works had exceeded its Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) limit for the third time in 12 months. This meant the site was non-compliant as, under the terms of its permit, it is only allowed two BOD exceedances.

BOD is the amount of oxygen required by bacteria to decompose the organic matter in a sample of polluted water. It is used as a measure of the degree of water pollution.

The same sample also contained a high concentration of suspended solids indicating the effluent was of a very poor quality. The permit limit for suspended solids is 32mg/l. The sample contained 1,280mg/l. Such high levels of solids would have given the effluent an appearance of ‘thin slurry.

South West Water blamed the failure on a blockage at the inlet of the sewage works. Another BOD exceedance occurred on May 29 and a further failure on June 2. The sewage treatment works was still not operating properly when the Agency visited it again on June 15, 2011.

Magistrates heard that a discharge of heating oil from a property in Tedburn St Mary had got into the treatment works in December 2010 and caused some operational problems. The latest failures in effluent quality were unrelated to this earlier oil spill incident.

‘Operators of sewage treatment works must ensure they are compliant with their permits to protect the environment and human health. The quality effluent at this site deteriorated as a result of poor maintenance and supervision,’ said Richard Fisher for the Environment Agency.

South West Water, of Peninsula House, Rydon Lane, Exeter was fined a total of £7,000 and ordered to pay £1,719 costs by Exeter magistrates after pleading guilty to three offences under the Environmental Permitting Regulations (England & Wales) 2010 arising from breaches in permit conditions at Tedburn St Mary Sewage Treatment Works. One of the offences arose from South West Water’s failure to notify the Environment Agency of a deterioration in effluent quality as soon as practicable. The company was also ordered to pay a victim’s surcharge of £15.00.

I think its high time our glorious leaders came up with another type of punishment for these companies,
They should bring in a law covering corporate vandalism and whack the chief executive with a six figure sum,
they would think twice about polluting rivers then.

I noticed out of the fine handed out to water companies the victim compensation was £15.00, Its our fine system thats needs overhauling, you can fine these abusers £5K ,£10k or £100k every pound under our current system goes back into goverment coffers, and not a cent towards the water that has been 'the victim'. I would like to see a reversal of the current system so that waters recieve money to restock, or clean up,The EA could oversee this .

Yep agree mate.

As we chatted about, looks like a major fly tip or from one of the waste transfer stations.

Can you post up what you have seen over time and will get it reported direct.

This amount of rubbish on the river started to get bad last spring/ summer, coinciding with the local councils "jiggery pokery" with refuse collection times and employment of large numbers of "East European cheap labour road sweepers".
During this winter, the levels of rubbish floating on the surface has gone down, this is probably due to staffing levels being cut at the local council.
Roughly two weeks ago, large rafts of domestic refuse have once again started to drift on the tide and begin too settle in certain areas, (outside my house), being one of them.
The appearance of oil is disconcerting and coincides with a stretch of the Thames Path being blocked by St Georges,
(Builders with no concern for local people), for excavation work with their mechanical diggers.
The oil could of course be domestic, in which case a certain riverside football club, a large riverside pub,
a theatre complex with riverside restaurant facilities and the large number of moored boats in the Dove pier area should be looked at.
Local people in the area who i talk too on a regular basis and who have lived in the area for many years, cannot recall a time when the river has been so full of rubbish, this coming on top of the filth that "Thames Water" leave on the foreshore every week.
How long will they let this go on?
Will they only act when someone gets Typhoid or Cholera?
If we have a "76" style summer,
the powers that be, might get off their butts and do something about the garbage, instead of talking it.
