Lower Street Drain, Haslemere

Several residents brought to Surrey County Council’s attention the overflowing drain in Lower Street.

I have been out with the jetter at the Lower Street crossing, investigating the drainage problem. The drain has been jet washed and a camera probe sent down, revealing a blockage in the pipe under Lower Street. The team think it is probably a water utility pipe.

Next steps… SCC highways to obtain a street works permit to excavate the road in order to repair the problem.
