Blocked drains

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 13:34, Wed 15 January 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 364082.

All drains in West Elloe Avenue, Spalding are full of leaves. Obviously this happens every year as it is a tree lined street. They need cleaning urgently, before the bad weather arrives.

  • This fault will be fixed as part of our next cycle of works. We cut the grass three times a year and treat weeds twice a year between April and October. We clean highway drains once a year.

    State changed to: No further action

  • The drains need cleaning now, not in the future. If we have heavy rainfall in the next few months then there will be flooding. The drains are completely blocked, which is what happens when the road is lined either side with trees. This case needs reopening and clearing now
