Tonight...

Rower notification from Thames Water:  Hammersmith Pumping Station (PS)


Following the recent rainfall, Hammersmith PS has in the last hour discharged untreated storm sewage into the River Thames, due to lack of capacity in the existing sewer network.

We are working hard to develop the Thames Tunnel to address the unacceptable volume and frequency of these discharges.

The proposed tunnel would capture flows from the 34 most polluting 'combined sewer overflows' (CSOs) discharging to the river, including Hammersmith PS, and transfer the sewage to our works at Beckton in east London for treatment.

For more information view www.thamesconsultation.co.uk

Toady at 13.30..

Rower notification from Thames Water:  Mogden Sewage Treatment Works (STW)

Within the next hour, Mogden Sewage Treatment Works will be discharging heavily diluted storm water into the River Thames.

Storm water is screened, settled in tanks and mixed with fully treated wastewater before it reaches the river.

We regret the necessity to discharge partly treated effluent in this way. Improvements are already under way at Mogden to reduce the chance of this happening in the future.

Until this essential work is done, London's sewer network - which is Victorian - and other facilities will remain overstretched. This
means that after heavy rain there is simply nowhere else for excess storm sewage to go, which is why these discharges, though regrettable, are legal and consented.

Spoke to the EA and they like us have been watching the weather and anticipating todays rainfall.

One boat has been deployed so is on standby in case of a major sag in the disolved oxygen levels. Modgen has not discharged yet but other gravity overflows are running. The main signal of any problem will come on the turn of the tide when the downstream water hits the monitoring points.

If anyone is out and sees any signs of fish in distress, please do report it to the EA hotline on 0800 80 70 60.

Spent a bit of time at Barnes tonight and didn't see any sign of fish in difficulty. Tide was not fully out but still seems the river may have got away with it again in some respect.

Heavy rain due in today, up to 25mm in places. Great for the lower non tidal, but will mean the CSO's will overflow on the full tidal, that I have no doubt.

Will monitor the situation and speak to the EA if nessesary

Sad thing is it goes unnoticed by the general public except when fish die.

Fact is, since 6th June there have been a further seven overflows that have been reported. The majority of the CSO's are gravity fall, it just comes out and are largely unmonitored.

As said before, just what would the upper tidal reaches be like to if it didnt happen. Hope one day we find out.

cant see any distressed fish on my side of river, (hammersmith), there are Ten Cormorants sitting on the jetty outside my house, normally, with the tide going down fast, they are filling their boots, but i,ve been watching the river all morning and have seen no sign of fish whatsoever.
I,ve got to go over the other side, (Barnes), in about an hours time, so will have a good look over that side.

walked along river from hammersmith bridge to beverley brook, then back up to leg o mutton resi,
never saw any sign of fish distressed or otherwise, waterfowl feeding in the margins, so there has got to be some sort of life in there, spent a hour walking round the resi watching the carp enjoying themselves and counted twenty seven (27) cormorants (some perched, some feeding), chasing what ever they could get their greedy beaks around, so much for this water being a nature reserve, are,nt fish part of nature? maybe not in the eyes of richmond council
