Sewage and Surface Water flooding in Theale reported to Thames Water and West Berkshire Council

I noticed that sewage from a damaged manhole cover was flooding a turning head in Spring Gardens. I have reported the flooding and the manhole cover to Thames Water and to West Berkshire Council.

I also reported the flooding of Deadmans Lane at its junction with Spring Gardens to the council. I'm not sure whether that's surface water or groundwater flooding, or a combination of the two.

If you experience or see sewage flooding, then please report it to Thames Water on 0845 920 0888. They will probably not be able to solve the problem (the local sewage system is being inundated with groundwater), but they are required by law to record all sewage flooding incidents. Please also let me know about them by email,Twitter or Facebook so that I can get them logged at the council.
