Comment on this story on the

As part of the project to increase capacity at Mogden Sewage Treatment Works, we have recently commissioned the new inlet works and primary settlement tanks, which are all covered and odour-controlled.

With this extra treatment capacity, we can now take the existing uncovered rectangular primary settlement tanks out of service so that we can refurbish and cover them, reducing any odour associated with these tanks.

The tanks are located on the west side of the works, and will require draining and cleaning, which may be temporarily odorous.

There are three tanks to drain and clean. Draining and cleaning the first tank will commence on Friday 14 September 2012 and is expected to take 3 days
