Reliable wastewater services
Ensuring you can rely on us to remove and dispose of wastewater safely and efficiently, and that the likelihood of sewer flooding affecting homes and businesses is minimised.
We recognise the value you place on a reliable wastewater service. To prevent sewer flooding and pollution we are prioritising sewer maintenance and improvements in those areas most at risk of flooding.
Another key part of our strategy is our ‘Downstream Thinking’ programme of catchment management seeks to reduce flooding risk through the application of sustainable drainage schemes and landscape management.
There are also ways you can help at home and we encourage everyone to use sewers responsibly – check out our ‘Love your Loo’ and ‘Think Sink’ information.
