The problem at Haxby
The solution at Haxby
The results at Haxby
Haxby village, 4 miles north of York, has a history of problems with the drainage network due, in part, to a concentration of Hot Food Catering outlets. Yorkshire Water has provided drainage clearance works on a regular basis and over a number of years, removing the build up of fat, oil and grease. Yorkshire Water required a solution to this problem which was causing serious disruption and cost.
FS Engineering has been contracted to provide Fatstrippa FOG separation equipment to six catering outlets and to clear the ambient drains. The following account details the works under-taken and the early results of Fatstrippa network protection. The red lines marked on the site plans show the approximate positions of drains that were cleared.
