As climate change drives more extreme weather the occurrences of waste water and sewage systems being unable to cope with excess water is increasing.  As a result, storm overfill tanks are being used more and more frequently as is the need to fill and empty them more regularly.  It’s not surprising then that more storm tanks are being commissioned into the UK’s water system and the situation is acknowledged as a current “hot topic” of focus for the environment agency with attention being directed at reducing odour pollution.  This means that storm tanks are being used more heavily at exactly the same time as the environment agency is insisting that any foul smelling residues need to be cleaned more thoroughly.

This paper looks at, and compares, current methods of storm tank cleaning.
