Bad Intermittent Sewer Smell

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 16:29, Monday 12 June 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

There have been several occurrences since mid-April (twice in the last 10 days - 2 & 12 June) of bad sewer smells, from the highlighted pin along Whitehorns Farm Road to where it joins Charlton Village Road. The smell is also penetrating into properties, and is affecting the quality of air both in- and outside when it occurs. This same problem was reported several times in 2022, but was not resolved.
