‘Operations May Result In Unpleasant Odors’

May 21, 2018

The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of May 28, 2018, it will conduct its Biannual Septage Disposal Operations which “may result in unpleasant odors being experienced in the residential areas surrounding the Marsh Folly Composting Facility.”

“Despite the unpleasant odor, the Ministry assures there are no environmental risks to area residents,” the Ministry said.

“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, cooperation and understanding while these necessary works are conducted.”
