  • We have inspected the road gully and this was free from detritus and the water level down below the outlet pipe, as per numerous areas during the intense rainfall of the 8th July the Anglian Water surface water sewers reach capacity quickly this preventing our road gullies draining the road, however once the Anglian Water sewers emptied our gullies became effective once again and the sanding water dispersed. Should this reoccur you can contact Anglian Water on 03457 145 145 and ask they inspect their surface water sewer.
