Fatstrippa Project delivers huge benefits for Yorkshire Water and Haxby

Estimates show that in the 20 months since the start of the Fatstrippa project in Haxby over 5 tonnes of fat, oil and grease have been intercepted and prevented from entering the drain network in Haxby – That’s enough to fill more half a kilometre of 4″ pipe!

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.
