Work is going on again today to help prevent road surface flooding in Bridge Street in Tadcaster.
Last week there was a huge effort to stop properties from flooding again as the picture above shows.
The Tadcaster Community Action Group has issued an update.
The TCAG says: “Following Yorkshire Water’s site visit they have been reducing the stagnant water from the Bridge Street surface water system.
“Bridge Street remains open.
“Engineers have been investigating the surface water pipe on Bridge St upto the outfall pipe which is located on the upstream of the river. Heavy calcification has been found!
“The build up is extreme, the pipe is believed to be operating at 1% capacity. With such reduced capacity there is nowhere for surface water to go.
The decalcification has been escalated as an emergency with work was expected to start from 6am today.
The group continues: “With rainfall expected on Tuesday a “recycler” has been requested to be onsite; this pumps water out of the surface water system on Bridge Street, it acts as a tank
The whole system will be fully investigated. We will continue to keep you updated.”
