Sewage stinks, right?
Our second sewage treatment system was installed on the KZN South Coast, way back in early 2004. When discussing where it should be placed, the client asked if it would smell. Thinking back, we were probably too quick to claim odourless operation.
When we arrived on site to complete the installation, we found the selected spot was right next to the supervisor's kitchen. Furthermore, they had built a braai area - 1 meter from the plant. This was unheard of in our industry.
Did the system ever stink? Once, perhaps. In 2016, the supervisor called us to come take a look as he said our system stinks, but the plant was fine.
It was the septic tanks. Apparently, there was a blockage, resulting in an overflow into the storm water.
Stinky Scarab? - Not on your nelly!
