It’s time to stop the stench, says MP

stephen crabbLOCAL RESIDENTS from Llangwm Ferry have called on their MP for a second time to help put an end to a persistent odour problem which they have been struggling with from the Sewage Treatment Works located in the popular estuary village of Llangwm.

Stephen Crabb MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire was contacted by frustrated residents after they failed to get a positive response from former Welsh Water boss, about maintenance issues on the site.

In February 2012 Stephen was successful in pushing Welsh Water to replace the sludge storage tank which alleviated the problem for some time but during the last hot summer residents were forced to endure the return of severe smell problems both day and night.

Stephen has been in touch with the new Chief Executive, Chris Jones, calling on him to take action to upgrade the odour control unit which he hopes will bring welcome relief to those living in the vicinity.

Stephen Crabb MP commented,

“The continuing problems at the works are a source of huge frustration to those living in the neighbourhood. I am disappointed that the work carried out in 2012 did not provide a longer term solution to the problems that the residents have been experiencing.”

“I have written to Welsh Water again asking them to urgently address the underlying problems that exist with this facility. I have been informed that a new odour control unit will be installed shortly which I hope will bring about a change that will benefit the lives of the residents of Llangwm Ferry.”
