Are You Watching For Flooding And Foul Sewage?

Burscough Town Council

has repeatedly voiced concerns that both surface water and foul networks are under-capacity, and that new development may exacerbate existing flooding and may cause further flooding. But people with power are doing nothing about it.

United Utilities manage foul drainage and it is their responsibility to ensure that there is adequate capacity. The Town Council is not aware of any significant investment planned for Burscough’s foul drainage network, despite recurrent surcharges of foul sewage onto our streets.

             

Burscough Town Council is delighted to work with Burscough Flood Group, an independent group of residents who have researched flooding in Burscough and who have compiled a comprehensive, evidence based register of incidents of flooding in Burscough.
