Hull Waste Water Treatment Works Update
We take reports of odours seriously and appreciate the impact strong smells from our treatment works can have on the quality of life of those who live close to our sites. We've been working hard to minimise odours from our Hull waste water treatment works and have invested significantly in improvements both to the operation of the site, and the odour control units which help us to manage odours.
We have also invested in an odour monitoring system which allows us to monitor odours from the site and track them using wind direction and other factors. This allows us to confirm that customer contacts about odours are coming from our site and can help pinpoint the cause, allowing us to take action quickly.
On 1st June we held a meeting with local Councillors to discuss our preparation for summer, which is the most challenging time of year for managing odours from the Hull waste water treatment works site when we experience the biggest load. We’ve been carrying out planned maintenance on site and cleaning out the tanks to ensure the site is working as efficiently as possible. We’ve also been ensuring we have spares on site to enable us to carry out any necessary repairs as quickly as possible.
If there are any updates about activity on site we’ll post them on our website.
