Water Meter Covered by Tarmac
Reported in the Manhole/drain cover on pavement/verge category by Hugh Campbell at 12:29, Fri 17 July 2020
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 373752.
Recent maintenance of the public footpath covering it with wet tar has covered straight over the water meter and stop tap preventing access for meter reading and isolating water supply and exact location. This needs exposing for access.

Its now over a month since this was reported, since then Anglia Water has been round and partially chipped back the tarmac to gain access to the meter but it still requires doing properly. It's a sad day when it takes a local authority over a month to "investigate" and still do nothing about the issue. If it is not completed in the next 2 weeks i shall do it myself and send you a bill! I will also be reporting this total incompetance to the local papers

We have carried out an initial assessment, but a more detailed investigation is required. We will provide a further update when this has been completed. We are sorry that during the COVID-19 pandemic situation we may take longer to respond than normal. Thank you for your patience.
