Existing odour contours

Sewage Treatment Works

Thames Water own and operate the sewage treatment works. Odour from the works can at times be noticeable in the area.

The development proposals offer the opportunity to significantly reduce the odour associated with the plant through investment in control measures that would be funded through the development of the site.

Odour monitoring and the collection of meteorological data has been ongoing at the site for some time and this work has informed models that map the existing odour contours on the site and the effectiveness of technical measures to reduce odour.

These plans identify the existing extent of the odour and the potential improvements that could result from mitigation measures implemented with the development.
