Sewage problem

First published in Letters

I DON’T profess to be an engineer but I think I’m right in saying the sewer outlet from the Harlech Retail Park at Maesglas is not big enough to take the amount of raw sewage, quite often spewing it across the pavement, forcing pedestrians to walk through itthis mess and smell, taking it on their footwear into Tesco’s and other stores.

You'd be right. I worked in this retail park for five years and we had constant sewage problems. Unfortunately no one would accept responsibility for the sewer system or the cost of maintaining it and so nothing was ever done about it. We paid for it to be cleaned a few times and within a week the problems were back every time . Even when our legal team worked on it, still nothing could be done. Despite leaving last year, I highly doubt anything has been done since!
