SEWER water is once again being pumped in to the River Lavant in a bid to battle high groundwater levels.

The drainage system in the Lavant valley has been overloaded by recent floods and heavy rain – prompting a temporary pump to be put in place on the river at East Dean.

Southern water is already surveying and sealing the sewers around neighbouring villages Charlton, Singleton, West Dean and Lavant to stop groundwater infiltrating in to the sewer network.
