ENVIRONMENTAL health officers are continuing to monitor the situation after several reports of a foul smell in Havant.
Havant Borough Council has received several calls over the last fortnight about a pong near to Budds Farm Wastewater Treatment Plant at Broadmarsh.
Businesses in Southmoor Lane had said the smell was becoming unbearable.
A council spokesman said: ‘It is our understanding that Southern Water has removed the offending sludge in sealed containers. Our officers plan to meet Southern Water’s operational director next week to discuss the issue.’
