Public Sewer Flooding
The Epping area is prone to flooding, particularly after heavy rainfall. It is the responsibility of the Epping Forest District Council to ensure that measures are in place to limit and control damage from flooding, they do this by forward planning and ensuring land drainage systems perform effectively. If you notice an issue with public sewer flooding, it is the responsibility of Thames Water Utilities to resolve the situation.
Road or Pavement Drains Blocked
Blocked drains on roads and pavements pose a danger to pedestrians and road users, it is in the interest of the Epping Forest District Council to be aware of any issues with these drains, though the authority to contact to get these issues resolved is Essex Highways.
Blocked Property Drains
In October 2011, Thames Water Utilities took complete ownership of the public sewer system in this area, however, the landlord or homeowner is solely responsible for the drainage system on their property, right up to the point it joins with the public sewer. If you are a landlord or a homeowner and your drainage system is giving you an issue, then feel free to contact us to get the issue resolved.
