Today we heard there is a problem with the effluent field which should be fixed next week:
The plumbers identified a problem with one of the pipes in the effluent field, essentially it no longer had capacity to filter out the liquids and so they were filling the tank and eventually overflowing. This will be addressed early next week weather dependent.
In the interim they have made a temporary repair that should hold us over until they complete something more permanent, I’ve asked the cleaners to resume their routine starting tomorrow and I’ll be down there later on today to remove the warning tape.
I’ll be leaving the portaloo down there until repairs are completed so that if the temporary fix fails we have back up.
