Report Flooding from Private Sewers and Drains

Private sewers and drains are the responsibility of the property owner.

 

If your private drains or sewers are overflowing, you will need a drainage contractor to deal with any blockage (see 'Yellow Pages' or similar directories for 'Drain and Pipe Cleaning').

 

If you are uncertain whether a blockage is in the public or private sewer, your water company should be able to determine this for you. Please be aware that if the water company undertake any work on the private sewer,  you will likely be charged for the cost.
