  • “Heavy rain regularly results in sewage flooding the Harefield
  • Road area in Rickmansworth in Herts. It floods out of the ground near a local
  • primary school and blocks a main road; trapping local residents in their homes
  • as they defend their property from the foul water. It also impacts a long term
  • care home for adults and sheltered accommodation.
  •  
  • When the water is pumped away, a brown residue is left on
  • the roads and footpaths posing a health hazard to pedestrians and children
  • walking to nearby St Mary's Primary School.
  •  
  • We need everyone responsible to get together to find a

  • flooding as quickly as possible and invest in the infrastructure which is
