Redundant drain inspection covers

Reported via desktop in the Other public drainage issue category by Amanda Johnson at 15:13, Wednesday 24 February 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2569619.

Last year I reported a broken drain cover behind my house and some of your workmen came and filled the hole in explaining that the drain beneath was no longer in use. There are a number of similar concrete drain covers in our close which are unsightly and take up space in gardens. Is there any way in which we can identify which of these are now redundant so they can be removed?

  • Confirmation the concrete drain covers in the gardens and grassed areas of Thorseby Close are part of the Foul Sewer network, which is a live system maintained by Anglian Water.
