As Thames Water drains and cleans tanks
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 are now taking 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 require
draining and cleaning, which may be temporarily odorous.
There are three tanks to drain and clean. Draining and cleaning the third
and final tank will commence on the evening of Sunday 21 October and is
expected to take 3 days.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
