Update 18th September 2020

Veolia plans to clean the storm tanks at Seafield between Monday and Wednesday next week (21st to 23rd).  This is the first available opportunity to complete this maintenance task following the recent heavy rainfall in the catchment area, and whilst weather conditions are forecast to be favourable.

In addition, as part of planned maintenance activities at the site, Primary Settlement Tank 1 (PST1) is to be drained and cleaned. This activity has been scheduled to commence today with work expected to take approximately one week.

Conditions are currently forecast to be favourable and every effort will be made to minimise the odour risk when carrying out these activities. 

Both SEPA and the City of Edinburgh Council have been informed.
