Public Sewer Flooding
Some areas of Essex are prone to flooding after heavy rainfall, particularly during autumn and winter where leaves and debris can block sewers and pipes. If you have noticed a blocked sewer in your area, and it is neither on private land, nor your own sewer/drains, it is probably best to contact Anglian Water who covers most of the county; although if you live in the Epping Forest, Harlow, and Uttlesford area, your sewers are managed by Thames Water.
Road or Pavement Drains Blocked
If you notice blocked drains in a public space, it is best to contact the Essex County Council via their website. Alternatively, any drain issues that impact road users must be reported to Essex Highways.
Blocked Property Drains
You are solely responsible for the drain on your own property, for which we are happy to assist you. If you are a council tenant, please visit your local council website for details on how to report the situation.
