Sewerage processing faktory-Werdhölzli

It stinks from this sewage processing factory right in the middle of apartment houses. To swim on Werd Insel is a pain-it stinks sooooooooooo bad from this.

And what they say here is not at all true

https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ted/de/...r/161005a.html

I have officially complained to the people in charge here.

The dumping hangar which should lower the odor emission hasn't been built yet.

The buildings plans have been approved:

Thank you, but neither The Local nor any mods are responsible for the sewage stench in your vicinity. Please contact the proper authorities for your debacle.

Did I say the Local or the Mods were responsible? ( indirectly responsible as they all use the dunny ) )
I complained to the City authorities.

I was under the impression that they did something about the smell. I buy good quality incense sticks. And I think if we were all vegetarians then the smell would be greatly reduced.

Re: Sewerage processing faktory-Werdhölzli

Here = The people in charge of the Sewerage treatment in Werhölzli.


Here is a quote from 2015

sda)
Anwohnerinnen und Anwohner in der Umgebung des Klärwerks Werdhölzli können schon bald aufatmen: Der Zürcher Stadtrat hat 1,35 Millionen Franken für die Abdichtung der Schlammhalle und den Einbau eines Abluftkamins bewilligt. Damit soll der Gestank eliminiert werden.

Bei bestimmten Wetterlagen stinkt es rund um das Klärwerk Werdhölzli. Untersuchungen identifizierten die Schlammhalle als Quelle, wie der Stadtrat am Mittwoch mitteilte. In der Halle wird zeitweise ausgefaulter Klärschlamm zwischengelagert. Die Seitenwände verfügen über grosse Öffnungen, durch diese dringt Umgebungsluft ein und entweicht seitlich über Dachöffnungen wieder.

Nun wird die Schlammhalle abgedichtet und die Abluft der Halle mit einem Ventilator über einen 21 Meter hohen Kamin abgeführt. Die Arbeiten werden in der zweiten Jahreshälfte 2015 ausgeführt. Nach Abschluss der Sanierung wird Entsorgung und Recycling Zürich die Auswirkungen auf die Nachbarschaft erfassen und auswerten.

The article only says that 10 months ago they approved budget to do something about it.

From getting budget to actually having build something usually takes "slightly" more time then 10 months.

And vegetarians you say, meat or not it depends on the whole diet. If we all would start eating mainly cabbage and egg's for example you'd better wish there's a lot of windows at your office...

Just be in luck there's na cadaver/slaughter waste disposal facility next door, i've worked in a hot summer on a cadaver disposal facility, and even tho 15 years ago i still can smell the trucks with cow stomachs whom after a drive of sometimes hours in the hot sun empty their load in a huge pit where it was left for days to rot since we needed to install new grinders at the start of the processing line. On Wednesday's it always was "chickenday" where they burned the feathers of a minimum of 500.000 chickens, also a great "air" (also weeks with only occasional sex under the shower, and no-one who wanted to stand next to me in the bar, since when i started sweating the smell of rotten corpse came loose...)

Eagerly awaiting the moment you have something nice to say about, well, anything...

It must be really depressing to be you.
