Human Poo flowing across Oxonian Street

Recommended Posts

Please be careful when walking down Oxonian Street and ideally avoid the road. There?s an open sewer spewing human poo & everything else across the pavement and road.

I reported it to Southwark Council yesterday morning and was assured it would be dealt with quickly but there?s been no clean up, no signs or barriers put up & people are walking through it, tramping it around East Dulwich.

This is coming from a private tenanted property on East Dulwich Grove and, despite being warned yesterday, it looks like the residents are continuing to use the toilet facilities so it is an ongoing and frankly revolting incident.

Please avoid this street and add your voice to the complaints to Southwark Council to sort this quickly.

Hmmmm interesting.

Looks like at least two things going on here (if plumbing norms have been adhered to).

1. An outlet for (presumably) sink/bath, which has a section missing, so is issuing water to the ground surface outside.

2. A build-up of possibly toilet waste, but unclear where from - possibly a backed-up drain.

Ideally the lower gauge outlet in (1) is not the source of the bad stuff because it looks too narrow for toilet waste.

If it has been the source perhaps why that section was removed, to resolve a blockage.

Whatever the circumstances, dangerous and gross !

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
