An outfall pipe at Gurnard has been cordoned off by the Coastguard after large amounts of sewage was discharged into the sea yesterday dinner time (Monday).

Needles Coastguard Rescue Team was tasked at 17:50 to investigate a report from a member of the public with concern for a large amount of sewage being discharged into the sea at Gurnard.

Upon arrival, Coastguard Rescue Officers began investigations and found engineers from the appropriate agencies located further up the supply already working on the issue.

The virus can live in poo for a very long time. This is a huge risk for those walking on the beach. It should be closed off.

Golly

Well said!!

The article says that engineers from the appropriate agencies are working on it, perhaps you’d like to give them the benefit of your experience as you seem so adamant that it should be closed off.

Fun fact: Southern Water pumps almost ALL of our shit into the sea (a deep and distant discharge at the end of looong pipes; the ONLY treatment being maceration to prevent ‘floaters’ and identification for if and when it washes back onto our beaches).

As though we don’t have enough crap going on already?

Appears to be a ‘big job’, but truthfully the CV lives in poo for hours, so if a dog eats it, then licks you it could be serious. The short trip down the sewer will not effect the harder solid stools, and once broken up on the shoreline are a real danger if seagulls eat such and then do their business overhead as ‘they do’.

Check out the time the CV can survive in human stools, it is amazing.
