Gully cleaning machine

  1. What the project will do

    The gullies that drain water off roads, sometimes called ‘grids’ or ‘drains’, can get blocked by dirt and litter. This causes roads or pavements to flood. Our gully cleaning machine uses a vacuum hose to clean out the pipe. We then refill the u-bend in the pipe with clean water. That stops smells coming up from the sewer.

    We will use Clean City money to buy a second machine. This means we’ll be able to clean the gullies more often and when you tell us about a flooded road we can come and unblock the gully faster.
