Drain has dropped. Puddle formed and keeps chucking water all over our new driveway.

Reported via mobile in the Manhole/drain cover on road/cycleway category anonymously at 13:40, Thursday 14 January 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 384104.

This has always been a problem with flooding on the roadside for the 10 years we have lived here. So you put a new drain in many years ago but the road has started dropping away next to the drain. So the water doesn’t actually go down the drain now. It just sits there. When a car goes past it is flooding our brand new drive. It wreaked our last driveway. So I would like you to take a look and sort it out please before it does it again. Our new drive cost £12,500 and I would prefer not to have to put a claim for it to be done again in the near future. Many thanks. Neil Goodwin.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because when we inspected there was only a small puddle to the side of the gully. We will monitor during future inspections and consider dropping the gully to allow the puddle area to fall. If the issue has got worse since the new driveway has been built, then the concern is that the driveway may be impermeable and water is falling into the gully area and not draining through the driveway. Thank you for reporting this matter.
