On the 23/5/2014 The Clean Seas Please team went down the sewers. Looking back this story is an interesting look as to how it used to look down the sewers of Brighton.

On Saturday 9th June 20 members of Subterranea Britannica headed down to Brighton for a gentle stroll round the town sewers. During the summer months, Southern Water, who own the network of Victorian sewers running under the town, take visitors a short distance into the Brighton underworld. The entrance to the sewers is through pier arch 260 beneath the Palace Pier. As soon as the door opened the smell of raw sewage hit us and stayed with us through out the trip.

Thousands of tons of sewer blockers cleared

More than 6,000 tons of wet wipes and other sewer blockers made their way into Southern Water’s sewer network between April and November 2014 – the equivalent in weight of 2,000 hippos.

Of this, 2,155 tons were cleared from wastewater treatment works in Kent, 2,018 tons from Sussex ,1,853 tons from Hampshire and 165 tons from the Isle of Wight, arriving via the sewers after being flushed down toilets.

Wipes and things like sanitary products, cotton wool and cotton buds can block sewers, causing serious problems – potentially leading to pollutions or flooding of homes and gardens as sewers back up and overflow from manholes.

It is always good to get to talk to the public about the things they can do to help in everyday life and make an influence on environmental issues. This is your time to help and support our campaign by making changes to how you dispose FOG’S (fats, oils and grease) and think about ragging and what you flush down the toilet!

Since 2013 Hastings Borough Council, Rother District Council, Eastbourne District Council and Wealden District Council have been working in partnership to improve the environment as well as to save money. All households has been distributed with correct bins for correct wastage to encourage people to recycle. This video shows how the recycling is collected, separated and recycled into new materials.
