Advance notice of drain clearing

This is advance warning that Essex Highways will shortly be clearing all the land drains in Elmdon. Further details in due course.

An update: The first stage of this clearing has now taken place with dramatic results. There is still a list of repair activities which will be attended to in due course and this announcement will be updated when we know more. Many thanks to Michael Gaine for his tenacity in raising the issue with Essex Highways and UDC - and in getting a resolution to the problem. Over 20 tons of silt were removed from our drains and already we have seen a marked difference in broadband performance now that the BT conduits are clear of water.
