To everyone who pays their water rates to Seven Trent please be aware on your new bills there will be a charge for surface water off your roofs going into the main sewers.
My advice to all those customers, DO NOT pay this charge! Why? Because (if you live in Kingsway), all the surface water off of your roof in goes into the down spout, and then into the ground via soakaways.
We have never paid this charge before but Seven Trent has come up with the lame excuse that because some off the sewers have now been adopted by the council, they can justify this charge.
I have just sent our claim form with two pictures attached showing the soak aways on our property, back to them for our rebate.
