  • A team from Oxford City Council arrived the same day to investigate and found that the surface water chamber below the manhole was full of silt. The same day, Oxford City Council reported this to Thames Water, who are responsible for the surface water drain. Thames Water said they would send someone to investigate within 8 hours.

  • An Oxford City Council refuse collecting team recently advised that they had noticed the manhole was still leaking but believed Thames Water had been to clear the chamber. However, on 6 April 2018, some time after a period of heavy rain, water was running from the manhole. FOR FURTHER DETAILS SEE roadway-drainage.html
