Hull waste water treatment works - update

Yorkshire Water has received calls from concerned customers regarding odour levels in the surrounding area of our Hull Waste Water Treatment Works.

We would like to assure our customers that, as a matter of practice, we consistently monitor odour and gas levels on all of our sites. The highest gas/odour detection levels recorded at Hull Waste Water Treatment Works were substantially below the threshold for potential human health effects as advised by Public Health England. Levels will continue to be diluted as the odour spreads away from the site boundary and the source, therefore levels in the surrounding areas are consistently lower than those experienced on site.

We have previously taken advice from Public Health England and are aware that the current level is at the human threshold for detection by smell and will not cause any illness. Accordingly, there are no concerns regarding human health, though the distinctive smell may be unpleasant.
However, if customers in the surrounding area are feeling unwell, they should consult their GP as their symptoms may be unrelated to the ongoing odour issue.

We would like to assure our customers that we are working as hard as we can to alleviate this issue, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
