Meeting about sewers

9 May 2014

Simon Collings represented OFA at a meeting of the City Council’s Scrutiny Committee today where the subject of sewer flooding was discussed. Senior representatives of Thames Water were present. Sewer overflow has been a problem in parts of the city for years and is particularly bad when river flooding occurs. The meeting discussed the various issues and possible solutions. The dialogue was constructive and Thames Water and the Council are currently agreeing a communication about the outcomes of the meeting. We hope to be able to say more in the near future. Our sense is that real progress is now being made.
