    I was in the area with TunnelMon after looking at a nice clean culvert so we checked out this CSO to get our hands dirty.

    It's a fairly standard CSO chamber that serves a smallish sewer and outfalls to the Parr Brook. There's an Archimedes' screw processor which is less common than the conveyer belt type screens found pretty much everywhere else. Other than that, there's not much to say.

    You could almost chew on the stench in the air! It was nice to get back out again, there was a severe lack of drains this winter

    Interesting crazy paving style concrete on that outfall platform - looks like it needs a patio set and barbecue.
    They'd have been better off putting in a few churn blocks judging by the serious quantity of water this thing ejects!

    It amazes me how ineffective so many of these CSOs are at screening jam rags etc. Millions of pounds spent on all these AMP projects and there's still tons of French letters and pussy napkins adorning branches of trees overhanging brooks and rivers.

    You bring the bbq & ill sort the meat, see you there in summer!

    Haha french letters, yeah they aren't really that effective when the flow gets above a certain level.

    That outfall would result in a page 2 story and outrage over here, eeew!
    And yeah the paving is a little out of place.

    The other one similar to this has an outfall paved with poop, would look good in @TheVicar 's back garden that :D

    @concreteJungle - I'll look forward to it. Nothing nicer than a good meal with the smell of 'fresh in the air! :)
    @Ojay - I almost had a patio paved with poop a couple of years back when the drain in the back garden got blocked. Had to make an emergency purchase of drain rods.
