Sewage is pumped into road near bay
Saturday 2nd February 2013, 10:00AM GMT.
A BORDEAUX resident could face prosecution after they pumped raw sewage from their cesspit into the road, it has emerged.
Neighbours yesterday labelled the incident, which happened at Les Rocques Barrees Road, as disgusting, saying the perpetrator should be held accountable.
Guernsey Police and Environmental Health confirmed that they were investigating the matter.
Although drinking water has not been affected, Environmental Health said it and Guernsey Water would continue to monitor local ground and seawater.
‘Obviously, the contents of cesspits include human excrement and discharges from baths and showers so it will have bacterial contamination as well as some mild detergents that are used in the home,’ said director of Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation Val Cameron.
