Drains and Sewers!

Last week, Yorkshire Water came out to Sand Hutton to unblock the main sewer following a report from a Sand Hutton Parish Councillor.

Yorkshire Water have got the sewer flowing properly again but they asked the Parish Council to remind local residents that there a couple of things that we can do to help avoid the sewers becoming blocked:-

1) Don’t pour kitchen fat or oils down the kitchen sink -  instead leave the fat to cool and bin it (or make bird seed cake!)

2) Don’t put wet wipes / baby wipes / make-up tissues down the toilet – bin them

There is more information about this and how to contact Yorkshire Water if there is a problem at
