Severn Trent Water attend promptly to sewage smell

Severn Trent Water team

Last Saturday morning (5/9/09) a habitat management working party from the Friends of Wom Brook noticed a very strong smell of sewage in the vicinity of the  meadow section of the Wom Brook Walk leading up to the South Staffordshire Railway Walk.

The smell was still evident earlier today, and a phone call to Severn Trent Water resulted in their prompt attendance. Reassuringly the crew that attended (Trevor and Robert pictured above) confirmed that there was no threat to wildlife or the Wom Brook, and thankfully the smell had disappeared.

Thanks must also go  to Adam, the shift supervisor at Severn Trent Water for pinpointing the possible source of the problem.
