    Dear all, I would just like to take this opportunity to send my thanks for the speedy time in which both of the above contractors reacted to an urgent pollution incident next to the river Irwell in Bury yesterday.

    I received a call at 13.15pm 14/02/08 to attend a pollution at the above address. On arrival to site it soon became clear that a C.S.O. was discharging a lot of sewerage into the river as a collapse on a 450mm sewer had surcharged the system and began contaminating the water course.

    TOTAL PLANT HIRE had a machine loaded onto a low loader and on-site within an hour of the order going on and S.L.D. PUMPS AND POWER had a six inch pump delivered with all of the attachments roughly 5 minutes later.

    I was able to mobilise a dig team to attend site prior to the equipment arriving and as a consequence of the whole teams endeavor, including the staff at the S.C.M. help line, a major pollution incident was avoided and the Environment Agency left more than happy with our response time and the quick and professional way in which we dealt with it.

    Once again, many thanks to all who helped!
