The bathing waters at Southend were at risk of failing the revised
bathing water directive. We therefore under took a scheme to improve the
waters by reducing sewer overflows and keeping urban pollution out
of the sea.
Kos Assadi, Site Manager, said: "More than 50 employees have helped
to deliver the project which stores excess rainwater during storms,
diverting it to Southend Water Recycling Centre (WRC).”
“We’ve been working around Southend’s combined sewage overflows
(CSOs) in Woodgrange Drive, Southchurch Road and Riviera Drive,
which can cause pollution during storms.”
