  • This gully has been cleansed and the pipe work high pressured jetted, this dislodged a couple of drinks bottles that had been placed into the gully, blocking the pipe. Once these were removed all water dispersed, this system was flow tested and was working on departure. There is no smells coming from this gully at all, we believe this is from a private foul water system opposite in the gravel drive/access way.
