Our TV documentary gets down and dirty

Sewermen, Thursday 20 June 9pm on 5Spike

Watch the trailer

Sewermen is a new no-holds-barred documentary on 5Spike (Freeview channel 31), following the trials and triumphs of our amazing men and women whose job it is to keep the taps flowing and loos flushing across the North West.

Sometimes hilarious, often icky, but always interesting, the programme shows a behind the scenes glimpse at the work taking place at all hours and all weathers to unblock sewers, fix leaks and test water quality to keep the region’s tap water up to scratch. 

You can take a peek into the unique underground world of almost 120,000 kilometres of pipes from Carlisle to Crewe and round the bend access to over 5,000 employees who keep smiling even when the job gets tough and the pride they show in serving customers just shines through.
