Odourless few weeks for the town?

THE LATEST ODOUR reports from Hull and Saltend news over the last three weeks, reveal that there have been no complaints reported to either Yorkshire Water or the East Riding Council about smells from the Waste Water Treatment Works at Saltend.

For the whole of October there were only three odour complaints. This compares with thirty in the same period last year.  The figures for 2010 show a remarkable reduction in complaints over-all which would indicate that things are actually improving. The Hedon Blogger’s nose certainly seems to have been ‘odour-free’ during this period.

However, despite a generally better year in 2010, July was still one of the worst months on record for odour reports with 37 complaints! However, that month there were with lots of local media reports (including the Hedon Blog) about the smells which may have encouraged more people to lodge complaints.

And therein lies the fear: It is quite possible that people have – once again – got used to the situation and are simply failing to report any smells.

So have things improved? Or are smells still going unreported? Let the Hedon Blog know!
