WATER RESOURCES ACT 1991, SCHEDULE 10 (AS AMENDED BY THE ENVIRONMENT ACT 1995)
NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR CONSENT FOR THE PURPOSES OF SECTION 88

Notice is hereby given, in accordance with Schedule 10 of the Water Resources Act 1991 (as amended by the Environment Act 1995) that two applications have been made to the Environment Agency by Yorkshire Water Services Ltd, Western House, Halifax Road, Bradford BD6 2SZ for consents to discharge sewage effluents at Acklam, Malton, North Yorkshire as detailed in the following table:

Volume and Nature of Discharge Location of Discharge Receiving Environment National Grid Ref Reference Number
Up to 58 cubic metres per day of treated sewage effluent Sewage effluent under storm conditions Sewage effluent under emergency conditions Acklam Sewage Treatment Works, Malton, North Yorkshire Acklam Beck SE 7803 6139 27/27/0140
Sewage effluent under storm conditions Sewage effluent under emergency conditions Acklam Sewage Pumping Station, Malton, North Yorkshire Acklam Beck SE 7854 6158 27/27/0141
The applications are in respect of a new sewage treatment package to serve the village of Acklam which will replace two existing untreated discharges. The dry weather flow at the works will be 27 cubic metres per day. The storm sewage discharge at the sewage treatment works will only occur in times of rainfall and/or snow melt conditions in the sewerage catchment when the flow at the overflow exceeds 0.67 litres/second. Storm flows will pass through a 6mm in two dimensions screening device. The storm sewage discharge at the sewage pumping station will only occur in times of rainfall and/or snow melt conditions in the sewerage catchment when the flow at the overflow exceeds 13 litres/second. Storm flows will pass through a 6mm in two dimensions screening device. The emergency discharges will only occur in times of mechanical/electrical failure. The pumping station and the treatment works are fitted with an alarm, standby pumps, generator socket (for use in times of mains electricity supply failure), tanker access, external pumping facilities (pumping station only) and each will provide 4 hours storage at dry weather flow; in order to minimise the frequency of any emergency discharge. Any person who wishes to make representations or objections with respect to the application should do so in writing to the Environment Agency, Coverdale House, Amy Johnson Way, York, North Yorkshire YO30 4GZ, for the attention of Peter Baker, quoting Ref 27/27/0140 and 27/27/0141 not later than 6 April 2005. The application may be inspected, free of charge, at the local Environment Agency office at the above address on weekdays between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm.
