Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 384216.
Road drain gully blocked and continually fills with water and floods the road when it rains. It has now flooded the roadway and frozen, making it a health and safety issue as it is sheet ice outside the properties.
Thank you for your report. We will investigate and make an update to this report within 14 days.

We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report because the highway drainage was cleaned on programme in September 2020 and no were issues noted. We're currently receiving a high volume of reports of flooding across the county. We are prioritising issues where water has entered people's houses and where water covers over half of the carriageway, which could endanger road users. Unfortunately, this means it can take us longer than usual to respond to other flood-related incidents. We've had some extremely wet weather recently, which has resulted in saturated ground and very high water levels in streams and rivers. This means that sometimes, even if road drains aren't blocked, there is nowhere for the water to go, so it takes a lot longer than usual to drain away. You can help by letting us know where standing water isn't receding a few hours after rain stopped. Please rest assured we'll be checking all the drains once we've finished responding to the most urgent flooding. Thank you for reporting this matter.
State changed to: No further action
