River Grom, Kent - River polluted with sewage

Aerators on the Grom 550

Fish Legal recovered £17,500 settlement for its member club, the Royal Tunbridge Wells Angling Society, as a result of a claim mounted on behalf of the anglers following the pollution of the River Grom in June 2006.

A series of equipment failures at the Tunbridge Wells sewage treatment works saw partially treated sewaged pump into the Grom over a 6 day period with a devastating effect on the river and its ecology.

Aerators, shown above, were deployed in an attempt to limit the damage.

There was an extensive fish kill and water quality on the upper Medway was seriously affected for approximately 14km downstream of its confluence with the Grom.
