The flooding in Monxton is having a terribly adverse effect on residents who live closest to the pumping station. They are very close to having their drains back up and flood their houses. Gardens and cellars are already flooded for some. The sewers are beyond critical and this is fast becoming a public health issue
Please be aware that every time you have a bath, leave the tap running when brushing your teeth, use the dishwasher or washing machine, or flush the loo- i.e. discharge large volumes of water – you are adding to the problem. So please limit your water use, as a consideration for other residents in the village.
(This is good practice for when we have a drought too and should become everyday habit!)
