Outside number 1 Well Street Buckingham foul water coming out between kerbstones

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 14:36, Sun 7 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Outside number 1 Well Street Buckingham, foul water leaking out from between kerbstones. I booked this with Anglian Water who attended and said it is not fresh but foul water, and they contacted their waste water team who attended and said its a blocked gully drain and that they had forwarded this to the council. Reference numbers I have from Anglian Water are 57459032 , 57461549 and GS 901717612. There is no drain near this leak at all, foul water and odour is literally coming out between the join of two kerbstones and running down Well Street.

  • Hi, this morning the leak is flowing well and its certainly not water running into the road, its either effluent or urine.
