Having clean end efficient drains would answer the prayers of Father Paddy O’Kane, the priest at the Holy Family Church in Ballymagroarty. His church was recently struck for the second time by flooding, as excess water spewed from the overwhelmed drains outside the rear doors.
From time to time we see an increase in the theft of drain covers, manhole covers and gully covers. This is usually related to a peak in scrap metal prices as the demand for metal from places like India and China increaes.
Darwen council is having a rather unusual problem with blocked drains. The culprits in this case are actually Council workers. Councillor Paul Browne witnessed street cleaners washing out their vehicles in Frederick Street. They let all the muck run into the street which then clogs up the drains.
Severn Trent Water is splashing out roughly £1.9 million a year on tackling blocked drains caused by fat and grease flushed down Birmingham drains. In one area of Birmingham alone where there are over 200 food outlets, they are suffering 550 sewer blockages a year. For the water company, grease is definitely the word – and a dirty word, at that.
