Today, Alvis Brothers Ltd pleaded guilty to an offence for a discharge into the Congresbury Yeo tributary on 28th September 2020.
The Company offers its sincere apologies to the Environment Agency and those members of the public who have been affected. Its apologies have also been expressed to the Court.
The offence in question arose as the consequence of a blocked drain backing up and escaping through a damaged manhole eight feet below ground level before finding its way underground into a storm water drain.
The Company has undertaken a significant amount of work to rectify and replace older drains to which the prosecution relates.
We are proud to be a significant employer in Somerset and are committed to being a responsible corporate citizen in the region.
