A PROBLEM with the drains on Cleeve Road has happened once again despite Yorkshire Water having claimed to have sorted it.
The scene this morning saw water squirting from a manhole cover. Local residents said the flood water was spilling out sewage and mashed up toilet rolls which were flowing down the street.
A problem at the same location in September 2011 was blamed on infrequent but high volume pumps. A Yorkshire Water spokesman at the time said that the pumping regime had been altered to stop the flow surcharging through the manhole.
A local resident said that she had reported the current flood to the Yorkshire Water Leak Line and directly to the driver of a Yorkshire Water van that happened to be down the street this morning.
This afternoon the manhole cover was still spouting water and residents are advised to continue to contact the company direct on the Yorkshire Water Leak Line 0800 57 3553 and also online at the link below:
