As of 1 October 2011, the Water Utility Companies (usually Anglian Water in South Kesteven) took over responsibility for the sections of sewers and pipes you share with your neighbours, and pipes outside of your boundary which connect to their networks.
Please contact Anglian Water on 08457 145 145 for further help.
The surface water from roads and highways can drain into surface water sewers. The gullies on the side of roads are the responsibility of the County Council, who can be contacted on 01522 552222.
How to avoid sewer blockages
- Don't flush rags, cotton wool, sanitary products, condoms, nappies, plastic or similar materials down the toilet:, put this waste in the bin.
- Medical items like needles and syringes should be placed in special Sharps bins.
- Don't pour fats, oils grease and food waste down the sink or your external drains. Allow this waste to solidify then dispose of in the bin.
- Recycle unwanted cooking oil at a recycling centre. If you run a catering business, find a company that will collect and recycle your cooking oil.
