Dear Fellow Parishioners,
I do not know if you are all aware of this but there was a significant overflow of raw sewage on to the Worcester Road near to the school over the weekend of July 6-7. Engineers from Severn-Trent attended to clear a blockage in the sewer pipe which runs downhill from the Hundred House . This pipe was in place long before the houses at Fountains Court and Glendower Way were built and so it now services at least double the number of properties than when it was built.
Engineers advise us that the pipe is adequate for all the new properties provided it is used properly and only appropriate materials are flushed into the system. It is not suitable for disposable nappies, sanitary tissues, incontinence pads and wet wipes. These items should be placed in refuse bins. What might not cause a problem in a town does cause problems in areas like this.
The overflow is very unpleasant for those living opposite the school as they are on the downhill side; unpleasant for road users where a scum has been left along the gutter and bad for the environment because the overflow ran into surface water drains which run into the stream along the Martley Road, which flows into the Washing Pool at Witley Court; then into Dick Brook and then into the River Severn.
Frank Chapman (Chairman of the Parish Council)
