Solid building waste trapped on and in the drain

Reported via desktop in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 20:58, Wed 4 May 2022

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

In recent days large lumps of solid pink building plaster? cement? dumped down this drain and left lying on top of drain cover. All clearly visible today. Last time this happened here the drains stunk of sewage for many months. Maybe person from nearby responsible.

  • It is most likely that this blockage has been caused by building work at 44 Berkelely Rd, and they have dumped a load of clay based subsoil and waste into the drain, which has blocked it.

  • I have just seen a man come out of the small annexe at the back of 44 Berkeley road and pour plaster down the drain. You cannot see from the picture but below the grate the drain is solid with plaster. I believe this should also count as fly tipping as they are disposing of their waste very irresponsibly.
