Last year, Anglian Water removed over 3,000 tonnes of wipes, sanitary products and cooking oils from sewers. That’s like 30 blue whales blocking our pipes! We’re always working hard to protect the environment by detecting blockages and keeping sewer pipes clear before they become a problem. 


Weirdest things we found in the sewer

Blocked pipes are one of the most common causes of sewer flooding in homes and pollution of the local environment – and 80% of blockages are avoidable! You can help Keep It Clear by binning kitchen fats, oils and grease and only flushing poo, pee & paper.


You can save money by preventing unwanted plumber bills by making small swaps in your home. For tips and advice on how to Keep It Clear in your kitchen and bathroom, click on the links below:
