Chronic blocked gutters?

It is that time of year when the heavens open and we notice that our gutters are not draining as well as they might. The leaves are almost all fallen, but a few stragglers in the gutters require clearing out. However, some of the longer culverts have more significant obstructions deep inside -- the odd plastic bottle or branch that has become jammed -- obstructions that are resistant to the attempts of mere mortals like you and me to clear them.

If you have this issue, contact the CCC Streets Team (click here). They'll  magically appear with their water-blasters and other heavy-duty equipment and hopefully solve your problem (as they did for me recently).

For a full list of contacts for various other problems (graffiti, parking, rubbish, sewers etc) see this page.
