OD/20/18 Eastern Gateway Sewer Clearance

Ipswich Borough Council are currently undertaking the sewer clearance works on a weekly basis at the Eastern Gateway site until the foul rising main is completed.


The original works were estimated to be under £10,000 and an order has been placed, however, due to occupant operations being escalated during the COVID-19 pandemic, the foul sewer has seen more usage than expected.


It is estimated that a further £6,000 worth of clearance work will be required to ensure the foul storage is kept clear and the rising main can be commissioned upon completion.
