Foam suds alert on River Ouse
9:00am Wednesday 22nd August 2012 in News
YORKSHIRE Water has been unable to discover the cause of foam suds seen floating down the River Ouse in York.
Reader Chris Gallagher contacted The Press to say he had seen what looked like “effluent suds” on the river near Lendal Bridge while walking to work on Monday morning. He said he had contacted Yorkshire Water, which had said it would investigate.
A Yorkshire Water spokesman said it had taken a call regarding pods of foam on the Ouse.
“A team went out to check that our sewer system was not at fault and nothing was found,” he said.
