During prolonged spells of heavy rainfall the sewers can become
full and having reached its full capacity excess water cannot drain
away. Until the rain stops or eases off it is difficult
to determine whether the gulley drain is blocked. However if
the surface water remains for some time it is likely the
gulley may be blocked and therefore requires attention.
For further information on our highway gullies and how to report
any concerns, please see our Drainage
- We are not responsible for blocked sewerage drains, these
issues lie with Anglian Water.

until they meet the Anglian Water sewerage connection.
