Danger of flooding
is being obviated by the laying of a 12-inch storm relief and foul sewer in Washbrook Road, Rushden. There is only a nine inch sewer at present, and overloading has occurred after heavy storms. At a cost of about £2,500 the additional pipe will be laid in a trench varying from four to seven feet in
depth and extending from the foot of Hayway to the main outfall sewer at
the bridge near Spencer Park
, where the picture was taken this week.
