Pump down the volume


It has been many months since I have seen Rhodia/Solvay pumping water into the Birmingham canal, but with the weather of late being monsoon, it appears that they can no longer contain the volume in the lagoon without mechanically intervening.


For some reason they are once again utilising the temporary pump pontoon that had been beached on the causeway path for some time- thus pumping water out of larger capped lagoon rather than the smaller uncapped one.

This appears to defeat the object of the pier pump being there, so there is obviously more to the chemistry going on here than meets the eye. Remember the aluminium sulphate nonsense? Why are they pumping water from this side?

It may be “good weather for ducks”, but not necessarily good bathing in this shit.
