Drainage and Sewers


Although the drainage of sewage and rainwater from properties may appear relatively straight forward, it can in reality become quite complex and confusing should a problem arise.

Evidence that your drain/sewer is blocked or defective could be that

  • slow or non-draining toilet and/or sinks
  • water overflowing from inspection chambers 
  • foul smells

Sewage ownership information from Southern Water.

If your Property is owned by Dover District Council please see our repairs page
