As a rural area, many properties in East Lindsey cannot easily connect to the mains supply and a private supply is their only option for water. Private water supplies can range from boreholes to Wells and Springs. In other cases, the availability of groundwater is a cost effective way to obtain water.
Under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 we can be asked to make arrangements for the burial or cremation of a person who has no family or other person who can undertake such arrangements.
We can provide help and advice on foul and surface water drainage from single and multiple properties, including problem septic tanks, cesspits, pumping stations and sewage treatment plants.
In most cases disturbance from construction sites is relatively short lived and will end as soon as the construction phase is completed, but we can help if the disturbance is severe.
