  • A Thames Water representative came out on 10 July and tested the water. He said it was ammonia/ sewage and there was no chlorine in the liquid. He was supposed to meet an OCC Highways Officer on site but they failed to turn up. He stated that the sewage is coming from the highway and needs fixing immediately. The whole of 38, 40 and 42 driveways are flooding and stinking. This is now a health and safety issue. Please update as to when this will be fixed.
