Water sector on track for 100% monitoring of CSOs by 2023

Monitoring of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) has increased 14-fold over the past four years, according to data from the Environment Agency (EA), with 100 per cent coverage expected by 2023. The EA has for the first time publicly released data on the frequency and length of sewage discharges from the 12,092 CSOs that were monitored in 2020, which showed 403,171 spills last year.
