We have live data for Thames Water so we can track what happens every day - given that overflows are supposed to happen on an 'exceptional' basis only - does the chart indicate that?
The red line indicates the number of CSOs that overflowed for at least 30mins, the grey, the number of CSOs that were offline for at least 30mins
There is daily updated information on all constituencies covered by Thames Water
Here we can see a plot of the number of days across the Thames Water area that CSOs overflowed, correlated with the amount of local rainfall, as reported by the Environment Agency Rainfall Monitoring Stations.
We take the 75th percentile of all the rainfall monitoring stations in or near the constituency where the CSO is located, and plot that against how long each CSO overflowed.
That's 4.28 months.

Experimental derived data from Thames Water API, Some data may be missing or inaccurate. This uses Environment Agency rainfall data from the real-time data API (Beta) - Rainfall data is delayed by up to two days.
This website is intended to provide an accurate representation of the Environment Agency data. The data is hard to use, and thus some errors may have been made. If you find something that is incorrect, please raise an issue at the GitHub issues page and we'll endeavour to fix it quickly.
