Sewage Works Pong

Written 21/08/02

Our county and district councillors Jane Coston and Richard Summerfield along with city councillors and officers from SCDC environmental health met with Anglian Water last Thursday to discuss the ongoing problem with smells from the sewage works.

AWA claim to have identified and removed one of the major causes of the pong. They intend to take a number of other actions in the near future to further reduce the smell including "construction of Odour neutralising Sprays along the A14 boundary by the Filter Works, a [GRP] cover over the Desludging Chambers [and] the installing of Water Traps on the Pasturiser Vent Columns."

The meeting agreed that ongoing monitoring would be necessary, and residents and businesses are to be recruited to assist.

They intend to meet again on 10th October to review progress.
