Storm release footage captured with drone

Footage taken during the week starting the 18th October 2021 shows the CSO discharges from Budds Farm into Langstone Harbour. The harbour is part of Chichester and Langstone Harbours Ramsar site, Special Protection Area and Nature Conservation Review site, Grade I. Parts of it are in Solent Maritime and Solent and Isle of Wight Lagoons Special Areas of Conservation.*

The harbour is not only an important area for wildlife, but is well-used for recreational water sports like windsurfing, paddle-boarding, sailing and swimming. The video below was filmed shortly after heavy rain, however the discharges continued for many hours after this stopped.
