Subject: Seafield Update 10/07/20
As part of our commitment to keep the community informed we want to make you aware of a planned maintenance activity at Seafield Waste Water Treatment Works this weekend.
After regular rainfall over the past few weeks, the site operator Veolia will start draining the storm tanks this afternoon, and cleaning will commence on Saturday (11/07/2020) with work due to finish on Sunday. The current forecast suggests favourable conditions for this period, providing Veolia with an opportunity to clean the tanks before further periods of forecast heavy rain. This work was initially planned for Wednesday 08/07/2020, but was postponed due to unfavourable weather conditions, in particular, a persistent onshore wind.
I would be grateful if elected members and the Community Council could help and share this message locally to help us ensure as wide a reach as possible.
An update will be provided upon completion of the works.
