Calling all residents who suffer flooding onto their property or into their homes from surcharging sewers like this
Photograph the drain/sewer surcharge if you can find it and let BFG@fullstopltd.co.uk know. Burscough Flooding Group won’t tell anyone your name or full address.
Telephone United Utilities flood line 0345 672 3723 and ask them to investigate every time you suspect your land or home was flooded due to inadequate drainage.
Make sure you get a Case Number and that UU tell you the cause of the flood. If they say weather then that usually means their sewer is hydraulically inadequate. Claim financial compensation every time you are entitled to.
If residents don’t collectively impact on UU’s business then it won’t ever fix its surcharging sewers while it pays fat director salaries and dividends to its shareholders. You could even become a small shareholder and protest at the UU annual meeting about its appalling failures to update its inadequate drainage?
