Smells like something 'Died' in the drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drainage gully category by Tricia Bombisha at 11:16, Friday 23 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2885320.

The smell is quite rancid, like sewer gas. The area outside the drain stinks. I think there is a blockage but my nose won't let me get close enough to look. This has been ongoing since the recent floods so probably for about 2 weeks.

  • The recent flood event may have resulted in surface water entering the foul sewer network, creating a high flow of effluent water, both the surface and foul sewers are the responsibility of Anglian Water, we will inform them of this, however for information they can be contacted direct on 03457 145 145.
