Kilham Parish Council

The Parish Council wants to collate all the complaints/incidents connected to the flooding in the village in order to produce a report to present to the authorities. This will help to make a solid case for action to be taken. To enable us to do this please send your experiences by email to kilhamparishcouncil@gmail.com including permission for the Parish Council to use your personnel information in the report.

We would like to ask for your help on another matter. If a bus service was provided through the village would you use it and how often? The councillors wish to explore the possibility of working with ERYC/bus company to see whether a service to Driffield, to start with, could be provided. Again using the same email address please let us know as we will need to demonstrate there is a need.

Yorkshire Water

A meeting was arranged with Yorkshire Water and members of the parish council, during this meeting it was explained that residents were frustrated by the lack of communication from Yorkshire Water and the inconsistency of the information being given by YW help line against YW engineers.

It was pointed out that the parish council should not have had to hire an independent engineer to examine the network before Yorkshire Water finally took action, even though they had known of the problems the village was experiencing. YW – explained that ground water entering the sewage system was the main problem which placed unsustainable pressure on the sewage system.

YW said that tankers were brought into the village to remove large volumes of sewage/water away from the area as pumping into the stream was not enough or a long term solution. (Permission was obtained from the Environment Agency to carry out this operation). The continued use of the tankers is deemed necessary to keep water levels down but this is being monitored daily and they will be removed when the engineers are satisfied the system can function normally.

Looking forward Yorkshire Water are waiting for the water levels to subside before CCTV cameras are placed down into the network to look for any damage and locate where the ground water is penetrating the pipes. Ground water is the responsibility of ERYC, so they will be working with ERYC to see whether the water can be diverted elsewhere without causing flooding issues in other areas.

Yorkshire Water are also planning to carry out a “ground water study” in cooperation with ERYC and with input from the parish council, to see whether there are any long term solutions. One option is to look at land management as previous research has found that soil can hold large amounts of water if managed, this would mean having the co-operation of local land owners. The study is expected to take between 12 to 18 months.

A follow up meeting with the parish council will be arranged around June time to feed back the information obtained from the CCTV investigation works. A public meeting will be arranged around September time before winter is upon us.
