Drains

Some recent issues with drains on the estate have highlighted the need for vigilance in relation to blockages and contamination of Foul and Surface Water Drains. Problems with builders debris and oil leaks have arisen which can result in unpleasant household fumes and in some cases health hazards. On occasion the EPA and Dublin City Council have attended and DCC have advised particular concern regarding oil leaks. Where oil enters garden soil the effects can be serious and in some cases requires costly excavation work. Disposal or replacement of Storage Tanks also requires close supervision of contractors to ensure oil residue is removed safely.
An occasional check on your own facilities can be well worthwhile to avoid problems developing in time.
