We have had a frustrating and hazardous situation for our residents of Greene, Lyly and Jonson blocks with the rear exit drains backing up from the main sewer with solid matter and liquid waste.
This first started to happen in May 2013 which as slowly progressed into the frustrating situation we have seen most recently.
Leathermarket have spent numerous hours calling Thames Water regarding this situation and felt not to be making any headway of the situation until yesterday we received confirmation that a Combi unit will be on Lawson Estate to remove 750 gallons of water / waste.
Today we can confirm this has happened, although this is not a long term solution to the situation, this now gives Thames Water room to investigate further and establish the cause of the problem.
Leathermarket will await information from Thames Water to determine if further works are required, if the drains start to back up again we encourage your support in reporting this directly to Thames Water on 0845 920 0888.
