Foul smells ahead in Pembroke
The Ministry of Public Works has warned there may be foul smells in the Marsh Folly area next week as sewage is moved to a composting site.
A spokesman said that septic waste would be moved from the Tynes Bay incinerator to the Marsh Folly composting site in Pembroke as part of a process that happens every six months.
The spokesman said: “These operations may result in unpleasant odours experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly composting facility.”
But she added: “Despite the unpleasant odour, the ministry assures the public there is no environmental risk to residents.”
The Tynes Bay site is used to collect residential and commercial cesspit waste from around the island.
But the spokesman said the waste had to be moved to Marsh Folly twice a year.
“The ministry uses the best health and safety and environmental practices while executing these procedure,” she said.
“We thank the public for their patience, co-operation and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.”
