Drains and sewers
Since 1 October 2011, in Chesterfield, Yorkshire Water has had responsibility for clearing blocked sewers and carrying out repairs to sewers at no cost to the householder.
You can contact them on 0345 1 24 24 24.
This means that, for most cases, you will only have to deal with the drain that you use and is located on your property. A number of drain clearance companies offer high-pressure jetting, which deals with most blockages. The council also provides such a service at a competitive rate. They can be contacted at any time on 01246 345395.
If you are a housing tenant of the council, you should continue to contact the Housing Repairs hotline to arrange clearance.
