Seafield WwTW site operators, Veolia, will be undertaking their annual planned inspection and maintenance works of the Thermal Hydrolysis Plant (THP) which forms part of the sludge treatment area. This will involve the partial shutdown the THP to permit the required inspection and statutory certification to take place.

As has been the case on previous occasions this activity has been discussed with Regulators and an odour risk assessment has been undertaken, setting out the relevant tasks and mitigations for the activity.
As part of our ongoing commitment to minimise any inconvenience associated with the operation
of the treatment works, we recognise the need to maintain open communication with our
neighbours. For a short period, the activity will reduce the throughput of the sludge treatment
but based on the manner in which this work has been managed previously and the forecast weather conditions (see below) the risk of elevated odour emissions and subsequent impact is ranked as low.

Work will commence on Saturday 29th September 2018 and whilst Veolia shall endeavour tocomplete this work as soon as possible it is estimated that the work will take until Thursday 4thOctober 2018 before the plant will be returned to normal operation. We shall inform stakeholders when this activity has been completed.
