Cars are driving over the water and this is causing splash backs.

  • 08.05.2019. Its been raining today and the stench of raw sewage is very very strong, enough to make you ill. Its obviously been spread by the cars all the way up and down High St / Jury St, what a wonderful way to invite visitors to our town!!! As a side point the road is starting to collapse in multiple locations which must mean that there are major problems in the ground.

  • Some workers dug up the road on Monday and then filled it back in again. Raw sewage water still spilling on to the High Street / Jury Street with a lovely smell to go along with it. Pedestrians now have to run the gauntlet to not get covered by this water when cars drive past. What a lovely way to invite visitors to Warwick. Well done Warwickshire Highways and Severn Trent Water.

  • It hasn't really rained for the last few days but we still have a fowl smelling water in puddles on the road. We have the folk festival in Warwick in a couple of weeks and if it is not fixed we will have morris men & women dancing and walking through the raw sewage.

    Can someone at at Severn Trent / Warwick District Council / Warwick Town Council / Warwickshire county Council please sort this out.
