Bad smell warning at Marsh Folly

The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of 10 December, 2018, it will conduct its Biannual Septage Disposal Operations.

These operations may result in unpleasant odours being experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility. Despite the unpleasant odour, the Ministry assures there are no environmental risks to area residents.

For the public's reference, the operations process is as follows:

• The Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility collects residential and commercial cesspit waste from around the Island. Every six months, the Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility is required to remove these waste solids and transport it to Marsh Folly. The Ministry uses best health and safety and environmental practices while executing these procedures.

The Ministry would like to thank the public for their patience, co-operation and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.
