River Wick: Sewage

Thu 07 February 2019

Please be aware that there is an “overflow sewage outlet” inside the groyne on river right below the Bridge St bridge on Wick River. SEPA have advised that sewage shouldn’t be released from this outlet unless there has been particularly heavy rainfall. However, there has been a very unpleasant sewage odour adjacent to the groyne the last few times we’ve paddled the river and there had only been heavy rain on one occasion. Best plan if you’re paddling the river is to get out above the bridge !! SEPA are continuing to investigate.
