Sewer blockage and burst main close York Hill

by admin on April 3rd, 2016

Two events coincided to cause the closure of York Hill and chaos to Loughton High Road. The blocked sewer (top) initially showed itself in one property but after extensive excavation proved to be the main sewer in York Hill.  The burst main (picture below) occurred on School Green at the York Hill, Staples Road, Queens Road junction.

And would you believe it….?…within a week or two to everything getting back to normal someone tipped a load of fat and blocked a main drain on York Hill which then caused more problems when Storm Katie turned the hill into a river and caused the usual problems for homes on the Hill.  Bin it – Don’t Block it as Thames Water would say!
