Scottish Water employees busy working on the stretch of pipe that leads from the Sewerage Bridge to the Maggot road told the Gurn that they have discovered large quantities of fat in the pipe. If this is the case does the community bear some collective responsibility or is it just one or a few individuals that are to blame? No doubt more will be revealed by Scottish Water later.
The Gurn expects that some will be sceptical but this would not be the first time that fat has caused problems in Nairn sewers.
Someone has also dug a soak away from the scene of the weekend's huge sewer lagoon. A ditch now goes between two of the huge conifers (well-fed trees indeed but now with disturbed root systems) but does not directly enter the river. If there are more discharges this is where the water will gather. Scottish Water vehicle on the Maggot this lunchtimeThe new soak away from the footpath just below the Sewerage Bridge
