Blocked drain, water now covering road and path
Reported via mobile in the Flooding category anonymously at 08:16, Saturday 16 January 2021
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 384332.
The drain seems to be blocked and with heavy rain fall the street has flooded and is now covering the path on Fenton Place. As it is still raining it is just getting worse. It is now going to cause difficulties for people accessing the street and garages. It was there yesterday but over night has got a lot worse.
Thank you for your report. We will investigate and make an update to this report within 14 days.

The water is beginning to go down on its own now and luckily the rain has stopped for now. But the drain is still blocked so will need looking at.

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.
