New Odour Control System Now In Operation

The new odour control unit

Work is now complete on the improvements to the Letchworth Water Recycling Treatment Works that will, hopefully, control the smell that has blighted lives for many on Fairfield.

The new Odour Control system is now in operation. However, Central Bedfordshire Council Environmental Enforcement team intend to keep the Abatement Notice in place until late summer 2018, as it is unlikely that residents will experience a smell until next Spring at the earliest. Naturally, we hope that we will all live and breathe smell free from now on!

If a smell is experienced please email our clerk. Anglian Water also intend to keep open their special email address and they can be contacted on that here.

Anglian Water have filmed another short video that will show the work carried out and this will be posted here when available.

In the meantime they have issued their latest, and final, newsletter on the matter. This newsletter can be downloaded here.
