It may be a new year, but for the South Coast, it is the same old, same old sewage as the problem continues.
Yesterday, a team of around 15 environmental health inspectors was spotted combing the Worthing, Christ Church area documenting the cases of where the sewage was settling and how it was affecting residents and business owners.
Chief Environmental Health Officer Francina Bascombe said the exercise was not an abnormal one, given the situation, and the inspectors were out interacting with people, giving advice, treating for mosquitoes and taking any remedial actions necessary. She also said they had an ongoing fogging programme in the area.
“We are aware of the challenges with the sewage backing up, so we have intensified the number of officers covering the area,” she said.
Environmental health inspector Matthew Chase was spotted as he spoke to businesswoman Janelle Wood of Vape & Smoke Thingies. They were looking at the large, very green pool of water which had collected behind the now closed Chicken Barn. (CA)
