Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 357714.

Been like this for couple of weeks. Did report matter to Anglian Water then have inspected the issue and confirm it isn't a water main issue. If we get cold nights with frost road liable to freeze with the water.

  • This constant heavy flow of water has been emanating from the verge for several weeks. I spoke to an Anglian Water engineer who was on site last week who tested the water and there was no fluoride suggesting not mains water but a broken / blocked surface water drain so falling in the local council remit

    This flow goes down hill as far as Stephenson Avenue

    However today as I cycled past the flow opposite the Gonerby Hill Foot School there was a distinct smell of sewage which has not been there the previous weeks which I believe falls in your remit. The flow is spread across half of the road and is being sprayed onto pedestrians by traffic.

    I have reported this to Anglian Water
