The Jubilee River story - Some big problems still awaiting resolution
Since the MWEFAS project was conceived in the 1980's, constructed between 1996 and 2002 and used in 2003, a number of 'shortcomings' have been revealed.
Changing the name from MWEFAS to Jubilee River hid rather than cured the problems.
This page briefly identifies some of the problems and provides links to further information.
These are problems that the Environment Agency hope will 'just go away' if they ignore them for long enough.........
