Keep It Clear - did you know facts

Did you know?

  • Anglian Water has enough sewer pipe work to go round the world twice.
  • On average our teams are dealing with a blockage at least every fifteen minutes 24/7.
  • Most of the 30,000 blockages we fix each year are caused by the build-up of fats, oils, greases, sanitary waste and wipes.
  • We are spending over £7 million every year clearing ‘avoidable’ sewer blockages – a cost that contributes to bill increases.
  • 70% of sewer flooding incidents and environmental pollution incidents in the Anglian Water region are as a result of a sewer blockage.
