Oil substance found in Croughton sewage treatment plant

the Thames Water reports that, for the second time in as many months, a substance of oil/heating oil has come through the sewer network in Croughton and ended up at the sewage treatment works. The effect is to knock out the biological treatment process at site. Thames Water attended the treatment works on 21st January 2020 to deal with the problem.

Thames Water is concerned to make sure such incidents do not recur. Such issues can be resolved, once the source of the problem has been identified, by rectifying and bunding the site from which the substance was lost.

Anyone who is aware that they have a leak of a non-sewage waste product into the sewer network are asked to contact Thames Water direct on 0800 316 9800 to enable Thames Water to expeditiously manage and resolve the situation much more quickly.

Thank you.
