Road flooding

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 23:14, Sunday 24 January 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 385569.

Two drains opposite each other very slow to drain assume blocked or broken issue worse since pavement works at the end of 2020 - standing water of at least 6 inches after rainfall - water creeping up the drives of nearby houses. Traffic drives through at speed causing more of an issue. Standing water also pushes out the covers on water maters causing a trip hazard

  • We are sorry that we are not taking immediate action with this report. Our records show that the drains in this area were cleaned in the last year and were running well. In times of extreme weather even the most efficient systems can become overwhelmed. Given time the water will drain away. A recent site visit indicates this. Thank you for reporting this matter.
