Public Sewer Flooding
The responsibility of the network of public sewers in the Borough of Wandsworth is with Thames Water Utilities. In October 2011, they took ownership of all sewer systems in the Putney area and are solely responsible for its maintenance and repairs. Visit their website for information on reporting sewer flooding and blockages.
Road or Pavement Drains Blocked
Whilst new roads are built with effective drainage systems installed, occasionally the drains and gullies can become blocked and high levels of surface water. The Wandsworth Council suggests waiting to see if the drains naturally deal with the excess water, otherwise get in contact with them to seek a resolution. Surface water on roads can be particularly dangerous to road users, so it is in the interests of the council to respond to these issues quickly.
Blocked Property Drains
The maintenance of an individual drain serving a single property is the responsibility of the landowner. The only instance where this drainage system is not the landowners’ responsibility is when it meets a shared pipe or becomes part of the public sewer system. We are happy to provide a fast and effective unblocking service on your private drains.
