Sewage on Colletts Green Road402 viewsHigh rates, undersized sewers. We have complained about this for years, but get the old "budget" story. The sewers were probably fine until the housing estate was built. No increased resources were put into the sewer, so the water bubbles up on Colletts Green Road, and then flows away into the River Severn through the run-off system.

Looking Towards Bransford215 viewsColletts Green Road, looking towards Bransford. The water fountain in the middle of the road is the sewer. It flows from the sewer into the highway drainage, and then down into the River Severn. Fortunately the height of the road keeps it from coming onto our property.

Colletts Green Road344 viewsThe undersized sewers are again not up to the task. The water bubbles up, and then flows from the sewers into the highway run-off system. So sewage is escaping and going down into the River Severn. We have complained about this for 15 or more years, but nobody does anything about it. We installed our own mini sewage treatment plant so we weren't dependent upon the main sewers.

Whitecroft Stream190 viewsA flash photograph of the stream. The white spots are huge raindrops --- they give this photograph quite a strange feeling.

Our Track, Behind the Dog Resort146 viewsThis is our track behind the dog resort (on the left) during the flood. The drains on the side of the track had become clogged. A bit of shovel work, and the drains were open.

Whitecroft Stream141 viewsNoramlly this stream is damp, or just a small trickle. Not today --- it was like a water slide at an amusement park.
