Yorkshire Water to invest £3m in tackling odour problem

THE HULL DAILY MAIL website reports this morning that Yorkshire Water is to spend £3m in an attempt to resolve the foul stench from its Saltend treatment works.

According to the Mail the work involves building an additional odour control unit and is expected to start in April.

This decision follows the company’s decision last October to employ a consultant ‘pong expert’.

Yorkshire Water has yet to formally announce the move on its Hull and Saltend news webpage.

  1. The Hull and Saltend news webpage now contains the following confirmation:

    “…an additional £3m is to be spent at the site following our final settlement with Ofwat in November, which sets the boundaries for both water rates and investment in the water and sewerage network over the next five years. The money will be spent on the construction of a new odour control unit, with construction work expected to begin in late spring.”
