THE slimy green sludge carpeting St Aubin’s Bay could be removed from the beach in a rethink of how to deal with the perennial problem.

Environment Minister Rob Duhamel has promised to review the current policy of raking up the sea lettuce and dumping it at the low-tide mark – only for it to wash back in on the next tide.

This year the stinking problem is worse than ever – with the green slime putting off bathers and causing a stink for residents.

Deputy Duhamel said that, in conjunction with the Transport department, his department was looking into how best to deal with the sea lettuce.

  2. Yup, you ain't kidding. I have never understood that policy of pushing it back into the water. However, if you think of the sea as a carpet and the lettuce as a problem then it's Jersey policy all over. It could almost be used as a euphonism for the Jersey blog sites, they just won't go away!

  3. How hard would it be to publicly announce collection days where farmers would be able to visit the beach and the States digger boys help them to load it onto the farmer's trucks?

    Same cost to the taxpayer, problem solved, with free natural fertiliser on the fields!

  4. Weymouth beach, spotless every morning, they realise that the resort depends on a clean beach, and they make damned sure that it is clean.
