  20 June 2014

SEPA is aware of complaints from members the public regarding offensive odours in the Erskine area and has identified the source of the odours as originating from a sewage sludge storage activity at Drumcross Farm.

SEPA officers have attended the site to carry out investigations and we are in contact with all relevant parties to address this issue which has been exacerbated by the recent period of good weather.

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure members of the public that we are working to progress a solution to this matter swiftly and ensure that the odours will improve as soon as is practically possible.

We would advise members of the public to continue to contact our Pollution Hotline on 0800 80 70 60 regarding this issue as public complaints will aid our assessment of remedial measures taken.
