HC Deb 07 July 1989 vol 156 cc326-7W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will call for a report from the North West water authority on the ongoing pollution to Rowley lake and the River Brun originating from Worsthorne sewage treatment works.

Mr. Howard

I understand that the North West authority is considering various options for remedying the situation including the possible closure of the works or the diversion of the effluent from both the works and a nearby storm overflow to a point below Rowley lake.
