We are pleased to say that the new Long Sea Outfall pipe was finally completed in late August 2011. This was rather later than planned and certainly impacted the peak tourist season.
There were some remarkable sights as the barges and heavy equipment laid the pipe. We are hopeful that this new work will make a significant contribution to Newport Water Quality.
You can see the following slide shows of the work, as it progressed, thanks to Kevin and Jo who have put this up on YouTube.
