Draining and cleaning tanks at Mogden this weekend
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
September 14, 2012
