Lewes faces a criticaltime with the deteriorating condition of the River Ouse. 36 upstream sewage outfalls, neglect, and insufficient conservation efforts are endagering its ecosystem. Urgent action is needed now.
We must unite as a community, demanding comprehensive measures to rehabilitate and protect this vital waterway. We need stricter regulations on industrial waste disposal, implementing effective cleanup initiatives and fostering public awareness are crucial steps.
We need to pressure authorities and Southern Water into prioritizing the restoration of the Ouse to can reclaim its beauty and ecological integrity, ensuring a healthier, vibrant future for Lewes and our kids.

To get back to Dave's point. I'm sure the executives and shareholders of Southern Water will do something in the next ten or so years. They're pumping sewage into village ponds in west Sussex and will try to fix it by 2030! Or maybe not.

The many benefits of privatisation of utility companies. Hope they put up the prices more to ensure the clean up is done properly AND the shareholders get a nice bonus. These solutions can only be found with the promise of financial profit, of course.

Is it any more than an open sewer?
I'm amazed cholera isn't rife in Lewes with the amount of excrement our authorities allow to flow through the middle of our town

Things wrong improve until shareholders get hit in the pocket and the responsible people are properly punished.

Recently collected data for a dissertation on the Ouse where all sites failed water quality standards, and e.coli levels would have posed serious health threats to swimmers in the Ouse. Southern Water need to face repercussions.
