Wet wipe woes in Windsor

It could be two weeks before foul odours from a sewage lagoon in Windsor can be completely remedied.

The lagoon is at the end of Centennial Drive and handles the sewage from one-third of the town, as well as the Three Mile Plains area.

Todd Richard, the director of public works for the town; blames the situation on the heat; the clogging of air diffusers in the systems, and high levels of sludge.

He adds that wet wipes are getting flushed down toilets and they should not be, as that clogs up the diffusers.
