Anita had complained about the problem with the sewers in Cleeve Road: “I am sick to death of having to drive through filthy water which pours out of the drains.”
Yorkshire Water has now replied and said that work to tackle the problem has now been completed. Stephen Shaw for the company replied to Anita and explained what had been causing the problem:
“The problem was to do with the Sewerage Pumping Station which discharged into the manhole outside No 9 Cleeve Road. The pumping regime has been altered to allow the pumps to pump more frequently but with less volume. This means that there is less flow entering the downstream public sewer stopping the flow surcharging through the manhole.”
