Guernsey public presentation on PSD sewage proposal at Beau Sejour on 12 January 2012

January 9th, 2012 by States of Guernsey Public Services Department

Guernsey’s Public Services Department invites the Guernsey public to a presentation on sewage treatment and Guernsey’s marine environment at 7 pm on Thursday 12 January 2012 at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre theatre.

This subject will be debated by the States of Guernsey later this month.

Intertek-Metoc studied the impact of Guernsey’s sewage on the marine environment.

Richard Dannatt from the company will lead the presentation. There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience afterwards.

Deputy Bernard Flouquet, Minister of the Public Services Department, said “Intertek-Metoc has carried out an extensive survey of the unique marine environment of Guernsey, and has collated large amounts of scientific data to back up the recommendations made in the States Report.

Given the importance of the decision that will be made by the States of Guernsey, we felt it important that the public had the opportunity to understand further the key issues behind our States Report.”

    With the advent of completely non-electric sewage treatment plants, there is no longer an excuse for NOT treating wastewater to acceptable standards for release into the environment.
    Let us hope that the PSD does not follow the UK by centralising sewage treatment, risking the dreadful pollution incidents that occur in the UK and using collosal amounts of electricity in the process.
