Problems with a drain or sewer?

Image of Drainage Work

The responsibility for the repair and maintenance of sewers has changed so that Anglian Water will resolve these problems for you in most cases. Individual householders are still responsible for any pipes which serve their property alone, that is before the pipes join the sewers of any adjoining property.

If you think the sewer serving your property needs attention contact Anglian Water.

Water and sewerage service queries and emergencies - Telephone: 08457 145145

This line is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Householders are responsible for septic tanks, private water treatment works and land drainage and if there are problems with these installations we may be able to offer advice.

Road Gullies

Blocked or overflowing road gullies remain the responsibility of the Northamptonshire County Council and can be reported on the Street Doctor website.
