Blocked drain - backing up in our homes

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:25, Thursday 25 November 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 410340.

Our neighbour at number 22 had the drain people out as his drains and toilet are backing up. Our drains have been slow to drain and are smelling too. Drain people said it is the drain in the street that has backed up and is what is causing all our drains to back up.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. As the residential drains are slow to drain this suggests that there is a problem with the 'Foul Pipe' as opposed to the road drainage system. This issue should be reported to the Anglian Water Sewerage team. This can be completed on Anglian Water's website and is a very quick and easy process. You can report this to Anglian Water at contact-us/ Thank you for reporting this matter.
