Havre des Pas spill

12 August 2019


Islanders are advised against swimming in the Havre des Pas beach area for the next 24 hours, following a sewage spill at the Dicq in the early hours of this morning.

Lifeguards will close the bathing pool during the 24 hour period, during which there will be two tidal changes.

Heavy rain during last night’s storm led to the spill from the Dicq pumping station at approximately 2.30am today. Teams from Growth, Housing and Environment have cleaned the spilled waste from the beach, and samples of the water have revealed high levels of E.coli and enterococci.

The Dicq pumping station contains both foul sewage and surface water, and is connected to St Helier’s combined sewer system.

When it rains heavily the surface water can overload the network.
