  • The gullies have been inspected and found to be working as designed, as per most of the city on the 9th July 2021, the Anglian Water Surface water sewers reached capacity very quickly at various locations, this then prevents our gullies from clearing the water off the road, once the surface water sewers empty then our road gullies can begin to clear the road and leave the road dry. Should this reoccur we recommend calling Anglian Water on 03457 145 145 and ask that they inspect their surface water sewers.
