Stevenson Discusses Local Concerns With Water Authority

PHINGASK WASTE WATER PLANT VISITED

SNP Scottish Parliament candidate Stewart Stevenson and Buchan North councillor Mitchell Burnett have visited the Scottish Water waste water treatment plant at Phingask, Fraserburgh, following a meeting with Sandhaven & Pitullie Community Council last night.

The Community Council had expressed concern over recent emissions of foul odours from the treatment plant.

Speaking after the visit, Mr Stevenson said:

“Clearly there has been a lot of money invested in leading-edge technology for the treatment of waste water. I was very impressed by the steps taken by the water authority to ensure safety and a clean environment.

“It is disappointing that there has been an incident resulting in an emissions release recently and I hope that there will be no recurrence.

“I encouraged management to engage with the local community to ensure that they had the opportunity as I had to understand the efforts being made at the plant. I will be monitoring the situation to ensure that there is no repeat of the recent incident but I am confident that Scottish Water staff are doing all they can to keep this risk to an absolute minimum.”
