SEWER PROBLEM SOLVED
IN PART OF POINT CLEAR ROAD


Point Clear Road looking towards Point Clear Bay



Point Clear Road looking towards St Osyth village


After taking the photographs on this page I e-mailed Anglian Water to ask for information about the works and was sent a very informative reply by Mr. Gary Standley, a Sewer Technician with the Company. I publicly express my thanks to him for his contribution. It is clear this work is not intended to solve the long term sewage flooding, experienced by even numbered properties, in this road.

The work being done is in response to a hole that appeared in the front garden of 150 Point Clear Road. Investigations found that the top of the concrete sewer had corroded and fallen in. This is a problem that has only just happened requiring this emergency repair work and is unrelated to any previous problems in the area.


This shows the temporary flexible pipe connecting both ends of the collapsed sewer


It is laid in front of the properties and covered with tarmac to provide access from road to drive


A section of the collapsed pipe can be seen at the bottom of this deep hole


Each hole dug to replace sections needed to be shored up to protect workmen.


How would any of us like to have this piece of equipment working on our front lawn?
I suppose the end justifies the means!

A Closed Circuit Television survey of the sewer showed that this was the only point at which the pipe had completely gone but significant corrosion was visible in the rest of the sewer. Therefore it was decided to relay this one section (manhole to manhole approximately 100 metres and covering 7 properties).

The particular method chosen uses 'pipe bursting' techniques, that eliminate the risk of further collapses and also minimise further disruption to the service in the area. All work is taking place in the front gardens of the seven properties.
This will be the extent of the current work, however, further planned work could be carried out in the future.



Some of the smaller pipes being used. Larger 300mm concrete pipes are also being laid

I hope this helps to clarify the situation for residents, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me again either by e-mail or by calling our operations team on 08457 145 145.

Gary Standley, Anglian Water Engineer.
