If you experience a blockage in a sewer under the road (Public Highway) it is likely to be the responsibility of Thames Water. They can be contacted directly on 08459 200800. If there is evidence of a blockage to a surface water drain, it is likely to be the responsibility of Oxfordshire County Council Highways Department. Telephone 01235 531331 (24 hours). If the blockage is within the curtiledge of your property, it is likely that as the householder, it is your responsibility to clear the blockage.
