Residents plagued by bubbling water that smells of scrambled eggs

PEOPLE living in housing developments are plagued by bubbling water that “smells like scrambled eggs” coming out of a hill near their homes.

The odor was so strong that some residents were concerned – bubbling water has also appeared on the site near the Domsville housing development in Whiston in recent days.

Local resident Megan Duffin shared footage of the bubbling water on Facebook and asked if anyone had any idea what caused the water to bubble.

Megan, who lives upstairs from the site, said she first noticed the smell a few days ago, before noticing water bubbling today.

After filming the water gushing, she shared the footage with a local group and said, “Can someone explain?

“It’s the hill across from Domville next to the school. Down the hill on the road is water flowing out of (I’m guessing) the water under the hill into the drain? But it simmers and has a strange smell too.

“I took my son to school and couldn’t explain it when he asked what it was.”

Megan added: “It had a weird smell. Kind of musty or as my son put it, “scrambled eggs” smell.”

The mother added that she was concerned the flooded area was so choked with water that a sink hole could develop, adding that this was particularly dangerous as an unofficial trail through the hill is often used by parents and children going to take a shortcut to a nearby school.

Megan said she was also concerned that water would now run off the hill and towards homes in the area.

Her post on a local Facebook group sparked dozens of comments from other concerned residents.

One person said, “It smells disgusting … I was trying to get a ball out for two boys the other day.”

Another said he noticed the smell while driving a taxi, while others stressed the importance of reporting it as it could pose a risk to local residents.

Megan said that after the video was released, she reported the flooding to United Utilities, who have now confirmed they will be visiting the site in the coming days.

She said “too many houses nearby for me to leave it alone” and received a call back from United Utilities to say they had it registered and would be visiting the site in the coming days.

A spokesman for United Utilities said on Jan. 6: “A leak was reported to us in Prescot this morning and our teams will visit the area to investigate.” Residents plagued by bubbling water that smells of scrambled eggs
