We maintained performance at our wastewater treatment works, with 367 out of 371 passing their consents.
We completed schemes to enable more than 300 properties to connect to our sewerage network for the first time in Hambledon and Wormley, Bosham, Rushlake Green and Stone Cross.
We also launched an awareness campaign to stop fat, oil and grease (FOG) being poured down sinks and causing sewer blockages and pollution.
The Fight the Fat campaign was supported by Lardy the Fatman, a snowman crafted from 92lb of lard, who featured on our e-Christmas card. His warnings were also turned into an animated film, which was featured on regional television and radio and in newspapers.
Our FOG campaign included an initiative with Shepherd Neame brewery to launch a Green Award for Good Management for pubs which dispose of fat, oil and grease responsibly. The pubs work with us on a five-point plan and invest in remedial work to clear their pipes of fat, preventing nuisance, smells, blockages and flooding.
The campaign was also backed by Suggs, the lead singer from Madness, who took a tour of our Victorian sewers in Brighton.
