Complaints about a sewage works in been so bad a phone line has been set up for people to report when it stinks too much.
Residents in say they’ve been plagued by an ‘unpleasant, sickly’ odour from the waste water treatment works on Heathside Park Road on and off for months.
United Utilities says the problem was created by a backlog of excess sludge which built up at the site after a mechanical fault – and the issue has now been resolved.
The organisation has also written to nearby residents telling them that if the smell returns to ring a phone number and quote ‘Stockport WwTW Odour’.
Any smell can be reported by calling 0345 672 3723 quoting project number Stockport WwTW Odour.
