Raw sewage overflows from a local treatment plant have impacted several fish species in the United Kingdom’s Langstone Harbor.

According to marine biologist Alex Ford, various marine species found in the harbor located on the coast in Hampshire have been found with build-ups of residue from contraceptive pills, antidepressants, and cocaine. It is believed the chemicals found in the local fish contained their habitat via the sewage spills.

Ford, a professor at Portsmouth University, led a government study of sewage’s impact on the country’s waterways.

 

Numerous harbors and other waterways around the country experience sewage overflows when treatment plants cannot handle the volume of waste. As a result, these plants pipe the excess human waste directly into the nearby ocean.

The government’s Environment Agency says that sewage spills and overflows were at a record high in the United Kingdom in 2023.

According to an agency report, treatment plants released raw sewage into neighboring waterways for over 3.6 million hours last year, doubling the number of discharge hours from 2022. Individual waste spills increased by 54 percent, from 301,000 in 2022 to 464,000 last year.
