Swalecliffe Brook statement

Our investigations into the diesel leak from our wastewater treatment works at Swalecliffe, Kent, and clean up of the local brook are ongoing.

Working closely with the Environment Agency, we have brought in specialist teams to help us carry out a full clean-up operation.

Protecting the environment is our priority, and following discussions with Natural England to ensure the clean-up has a minimal impact on the area, we will resume the work on Monday. We're also liaising with the council, which has put up signs advising people not to go into the water.

We apologise for the inconvenience this causes and thank everyone for their patience as we carry out these emergency works.
