Southern Water have revealed their latest stats from the past year - and that includes across West Sussex.

In their latest stats, they've revealed an investment of £473 million across Sussex over the past twelve months, as well as claim water and wastewater bills have fell by 1.3 per cent - with money also going to help customers struggling to pay bills.

This includes upgrades at their wastewater treatment works that discharge into Chichester and Pagham Harbours to enhance water quality, as well as a project which was set out to reduce stormwater releases by preventing non-sewage entering the water network.

There's more money being invested too - with an additional £37 million in used to upgrade sites and treatment processes.

It's all in aid of them continuing to provide a reliable supply of high-quality drinking water.

This comes after they led a summit with key partners to address the declining health of Chichester, Langstone and Pagham harbours and agreed steps to restore these habitats.

They say they're taking action by investing £72 million by 2025 to improve the local water quality across the region - and have committee another £650 million this year alone to improve their network.
