Blocked drain, this drain full of water

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Nicholas Fleming at 11:57, Thursday 14 January 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 384079.

Drain on side of road is blocked , between my house on Legsby Road and The Ridings,(drain cover near De Aston School playing fields), currently full up of water. Next drain down the road, (near turning for the Ridings), is clear. So assume the drain is blocked somewhere between these 2 drain covers. The Drain Covers up Legsby Road towards the racecourse are also full of water. A blockage to drains along the road cause water to backfill up my drain in my drive at my house, 'Clearwell', about 30 yards up the road from this blocked drain. (My drive is lowest point of all adjacent properties) With the rain pouring down it backfills and floods my drive if the road drain gets blocked, in extreme rain my garage can become flooded. Can you therefore please come and unblock this drain as soon as possible. PS this may have already been reported to you by someone else, as there is a traffic cone and sandbags adjacent to this drain. However I could not find any report of this blockage on Fix my Street, so have now reported it. (I cannot see a reason for what the sandbags/cone actually are doing)

  • Since I reported this drain blockage on 14th Jan, we have now had 3 more occasions of heavy rainfall that has again caused flooding on my drive. Today has been the worst rainfall with water pouring up through my drain onto my drive . Again I checked the drains along Legsby Road and the same ones are again are full of water during heavy rainfall exactly as first reported to you. Following my first report you state that you would investigate and make an update within 14 days. Currently now it's 23 days from when it was posted. Can you please come and get the original highlighted drain cleared. Please note the drain, along Legsby Road towards The Ridings, was also similarly reported as blocked in November 2019, and when cleared in Mar 2020 stopped my drive from flooding.
