Reflections on a new chapter in English sewage regulation  click here for pdf
BEN PONTIN Cardiff University

CSOs were a late addition to the UK’s Environment Act 2021 and the obligation to review them is welcome from the perspective of ‘best environmental value’. However, schemes to eliminate CSO discharges may have adverse environmental consequences and much depends on the nature of the alternatives.
