We just learned a new word: Effluvia: ‘an unpleasant or harmful odour or discharge’. Homes across London remain at risk of being flooded by effluvia as a result of the capital’s Victorian sewage system and heavy rainfall. The London Flood Review concluded current infrastructure is unfit for purpose, especially in extreme weather. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I did know the word, and fortunately no longer live in London. 🙂
The word was new to me, unfortunately effluvia is also in Norfolk.

Yes, we have reports of sewage discharge into local waterways, but currently nothing is coming back up the drains in Beetley.
