News, opinion and pictures from sunny Nairnshire - keep in touch, bookmark the Gurn
Been going on too long - time for a decent fix before Nairn becomes the jobbie capital of the north. No wonder the beach fails its test as all the raw stuff goes straight into the sea. Time for some urgent action this time as it was an utter disgrace. I was there with my 3 grandkids from America and they had to hold their noses as we walked by..
Jobbie racing on the river Nairn, could become an Olympic sport such is the interest and the best thing is all can enter as well.We have Scottish Water to thank for this, maybe they'd sponsor the GB team?I'm off to do some training...
It may have been understandable if we were talking a months rain in 24hours, but this was moderate heavy rainfall for 20 minutes !The system is unable to cope and must be rectified.
Maybe someone will build a resting place for the jobbies, and carry any tired looking ones home for a rest?
Aw, the little baby ones look so sweet
Cue obvious comment then - maybe the sewer that was replaced recently had nothing to do with this sewer. Maybe this sewer is a different sewer to the one recently replaced.Obvious comments, but probably true.
The Gurn last October detailing River CC’s intention to write to SEPA, Scottish Water and Highland Council environmental health department over problems in the Brocher’s Brae/Sewage Bridge area: Click hereThere had been some optimism that the news that the Brocher’s Brae pipe replacement was going ahead would alleviate the problem at the Bridge, perhaps a brand new pipe with no fat lining the interior just gets the foul water to the next hiccup in the chain (ie the Sewage Bridge) quicker. A statement from Scottish Water as to why the manholes released sewage would be helpful here. Serious students of these matters would also profit from revisiting what Mr J Rosie of SEPA had to say in a letter to River CC concerning the discharges into the river and paths in this problem area.

It seems pretty obvious that the problem must lie somewhere beyond the east riverside manhole, and is being restricted or stopped somewhere to the east of merryton bridge. When I was present at the incident, the flood overflow discharge into the river only kicked in after the riverside paths had already been flooded with sewage.
Ah yes, the infamous "no more matters to be discussed, the matter is closed" blog, after it was suggested that only selective CC correspondence was being published on this website.
Yes, give scottish water a break. They have replaced one long sewer with new which had leaked previously. This matter is related to something else in the system.
