THE Hull Mail *reported yesterday that 99 families are set to take legal action against Yorkshire Water because of ongoing problems over foul odours from the Saltend Waste Water Treatment Works.
At the Hedon Blog, with our ear to the ground about all things Hedon – and our noses in the air for all things smelly! – we admit we were taken unawares by reports of this legal action. Although our first response is “ONLY 99 families taking action???”.
The petition calling for the abatement order launched by the ‘Stench at Saltend’ Facebook Group was signed by over 2,000 people and thousands have lodged complaints over the years particularly about the summer-ruining stench.
We are keen to follow-up this story on the Hedon Blog – if you are a member of one of those 99 families and want to explain more about the action, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
