On Sunday 25th July the Meadow Trail is CLOSED around the Hayling Lake due to a sewage leak. Anglian Water staff are dealing with the leak and the Environment Agency has been called in to look after the lake and its fine stock of carp. As yet, we don't know how badly effected the lake will be. It will depend on prompt action by the agencies concerned. Please avoid the area for now.
There is a pumping station at the allotments and the main pipe runs under our path all the way to the Ouse Valley Way. The pipe then crosses the river to reach the treatment works on the other side.
This pipe is very old and leaks every year at some point, but first reports indicate that this is a bigger leak then usual.
