Unusual odour at Cotton Valley, Milton Keynes


Unfortunately, we had a fire at our Cotton Valley Water Recycling Centre on Sunday, February 1st. The Fire Brigade attended, and the fire is now out.

The fire damaged some of the equipment on site, and this means we aren't able to burn off all of the gases that are produced during the water recycling process.

A small amount of these gases may therefore be released into the atmosphere. If you are nearby, you may be able to smell them.

Although these gasses smell unpleasant, please be assured that they pose no risk to health in these quantities.

We're working hard to repair the equipment, and will get things back to normal as soon as we can. In the meantime, please accept our apologies if you experience the unusual smell.
