of water last week following heavy rain, as we first reported
here, and residents
called for action to resolve the problems.
resident David Lemon told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "After the
flooding of Maple Drive over the last few weeks I felt I must
thank Wessex Water for their sterling work from Tuesday to late
Saturday night to repair and clean the storm water drainage system."
"They have completely serviced the system, made repairs in
two places where the pipe had collapsed but, more than this, all
the workers were courteous, helpful and most importantly kept
us informed at all times."
big thank you for all their efforts. I and they are hopeful that
the system will cope with the winter rains."
He added that residents are now hoping that Burnham Holiday Village
will resolve problems with a rhyne that the storm water runs into,
and thereby fully sort out the long-running problems.
