Ministry: ‘May Result In Unpleasant Odors’

January 28, 2019

The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of February 4, septage disposal operations will take place between 7.30am and 4.00pm, and this “may result in unpleasant odors being experienced.”

A Government spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works is advising that during the week of 4 February, 2019, septage disposal operations will take place.

“Works will be conducted daily between 7.30 a.m. and 4.00 p.m., and it’s anticipated that weather permitting, the disposal operations will last a week.

“These operations 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 public is reminded that the Tynes Bay Septage Receiving Facility collects residential and commercial cesspit waste from around the Island. Every six months, the Facility is required to remove these waste solids, and transport these 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.”

    So, pardon my ignorance but wouldn’t it make sense to just take it all to the composting site in the first place? I thought it was being treated and burned at Tynes Bay

    How about a notice apologizing to the public for the stench emanating from the Pee L Pee government in general??
