We are responsible for the removal of surface water from the carriageway and footway as quickly as possible under normal weather conditions.

A series of drains (gratings on the surface) are provided which collect the rainwater. These drains are generally located along the edge of roads or in open footway areas.

Blocked drains on private property are the responsibility of the householder/landowner.

If you have a problem with waste water and sewage drains your local water authority will need to be contacted.
