Action on Rawcliffe Sewage Plant Smells

March 6, 2016

Julian recently met with representatives from Yorkshire Water as well as the Rawcliffe and Clifton Without Councillors Stuart Rawlings, Peter Dew and Sam Lisle, to discuss the issue of problems smells coming from the Sewage Plant in Rawcliffe.

This is an historic problem which has been raised by residents with Julian and the Ward Councillors on a number of occasions.

The plant treats waste water and sewage from across York, and whilst sewage treatment is essential for maintaining water quality it clearly has a detrimental impact on those living in close by. The treatment works is situated just off Shipton Road behind the Rawcliffe Bar Park and Ride and at times the smell can travel a very large distance.

Commenting after the meeting Julian said, “I am grateful to Yorkshire Water for taking the time to meet with the local Ward Councillors and myself to listen to the concerns raised with us by residents. Sewage and foul water treatment is something which we all take for granted and unfortunately it can lead to some pretty unpleasant smells.

“I was interested to learn that there are facilities for perfume spraying on the site which are currently not in use. I will be following this up with Yorkshire Water to see if they will consider restarting this programme.”
