Abrahams: You will pay for abuse of sewers
Abusers of the south coast sewerage system will feel the full weight of the law if found guilty of misuse.
The warning has come from Minister of Energy and Water Resources Wilfred Abrahams one week after a manhole at Rendezvous, Christ Church, was found to be “weeping”.
He told THE NATION the “slight blip” was “picked up immediately” in the process of “careful monitoring” of the system. A bypass pump on Worthing, Christ Church, was checked and serviced and all the lines connected to or near that pump flushed to correct the problem.
“What we realised when we removed the covers, was that the sewers were full of grease again. We pumped off a lot of it to clear out the sewer line, but I guess with the inflow of tourists for cricket and with the heavy operations on the South Coast, the businesses are back to their practice of dumping grease down in the sewer,” Abrahams explained.
