Well done United Utilities, a great achievement. You do need to try a lot harder at the other end of your business as the odour from your sewage plant in Davyhulme effects the health and wellbeing of local residents. As far as reducing your so called Carbon footprint in Davyhulme you will infact be increasing it greatly with your planned 5 biogas engines which will be adding to the Nitrogen Dioxide of the ambient air which already monitors 48.3% over the EEC legal limit
