A very bad smell coming from the Drain on the road

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drainage gully category anonymously at 13:23, Tue 24 November 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2403165.

The drain in the road has a very bad smell coming, it’s located outside 6 Cecil rd, I had Dalrod come out to look at my drains, in which they flush the drain system on my side of the house. They told me my drains are fine it’s the drain at the road side. If someone can come out to have a look at it please. It’s already cost me £99.00 incl vat from Dalrod.

  • This road gully has been inspected and the gully was free from detritus and the water level was above the outlet pipe thus stopping any smells coming back up the system (same principal as a household toilet) therefore no defects found to this gully that takes clean rain water only.

    State changed to: No further action
