  • All gullies at this location and all down Eastern Close have been inspected and all water levels are down to below the outlet pipe with no blockages found. This would have been down to the Anglian Water surface water sewer being at capacity and this making our road gullies unable to drain away, this was common throughout Peterborough on the 9th July 2021, however once the rain had stopped the sewer emptied this making our gullies be able to drain the road again. if this reoccurs we recommend calling Anglian Water on 03457 145 145 and ask they inspect their surface water sewer.
