Blocked and smelly drains

I’m a resident of Malefant Street and for the last 4+ weeks, we’ve had major issues with an overpowering and distinct odour of sewage throughout the majority of the street.

I was unsure what / who to report this too but I’ve spoken with residents and they acknowledge that the street unpredictably increases and decreases in the strength of its smell. For several weeks, I thought nothing of it and assumed it would be resolved. However, our street was very quiet at the time but now that various houses have become occupied, we as a household have spoken to various residents and it’s noticeable for them too so again, I thought somebody would report it but it doesn’t seem to be getting any attention, so I thought I would try this medium due to my lack of awareness in what the issue qualifies as from an administration standpoint.

Thank you for your time, especially in this difficult climate!

Kind regards, Riley Davies

90a Malefant Street resident :)
