Blocked drain Corner of Craypool and Back Lanes

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 09:32, Sunday 26 July 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374078.

The verges get cut and the bits left in the road, so when it rains it all comes cascading down Orchard Close and Craypool and all ends up at the junction of Back Lane. The drains are blocked further up Craypool, they have been reported but you have said you are taking no action. The council are not cleaning the lane after cutting verges. When the drain gets blocked our sewage pipe is affected and the water backs up our downstairs toilet. I will report it again to Anglian Water but they say it is the local authority drains that are the problem. I don’t want to get flooded so you must keep on top of clearing ALL the drains on Craypool Lane. Thank you.
