Please report any problems with a Sedgemoor District Council owned and/or maintained sewage treatments/pumping station to us, detailing the name of the site from the lists above. Problems may include;

  • the light on top of the kiosk if flashing - this indicates a fault with the station

What not to dispose of down your sink or toilet

It is very important not to throw or dispose of certain items or liquids down your sink or toilet, even if it says that the item is disposable. Certain items or liquids can cause damage and problems to the sewage treatment process, stopping the sewage works from working correctly and may result in the station being closed down for repair. Below is a brief list of items and types of liquids that are known to be a problem:

  • bandages, plasters & dental floss
  • chemicals i.e. white spirit, paint cleaner/thinners
  • condoms, tampons & tampon applicators
  • cotton buds
  • disposable nappies
  • medicines
  • rags
  • razors and blades
  • sanitary towels & incontinence pads
  • syringes & needles
  • vegetable oil, fats & vehicle oil
