Largest fatberg to be destroyed in Southwest, London

Published on : Thursday, February 7, 2019

Workers have begun the task of destroying the largest fatberg ever found in the southwest of England.


The southwest of England has the largest fatberg ever found and workers have started destroying it. The 64 metres long blockage in Sidmouth, Devon will be broken by a team that will use pickaxes and shovels.



The blockages was caused by fat, oil and grease wet wipes and items that cannot be flushed.   The work was brought to a halt on Wednesday after heavy rain overnight and the team will be back to work after the water level in the sewer gets safe.



South West Water’s director of wastewater, Andrew Roantree said that the Sidmouth fatberg is the largest discovered in our service history, and the sewer team will take around eight weeks to dissect this monster in exceptionally challenging work conditions.


People are being encouraged to flush the 3Ps- pee, paper and poo down the loo  and dispose off cooking waste.
