Culvert under road at Boston Road is not draining sufficiently quickly
Reported via desktop in the Damaged dyke, ditch or culvert category anonymously at 14:53, Friday 29 January 2021
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 386226.
I know it's wet .... but could the culvert at Boston Road be checked please? The water in the drain is high and not getting away. The Town Council upkeeps the ditch - strimming and clearing out - but the culvert may not be sufficient to deal with the large volume of water.
Thank you for your report. We will investigate and make an update to this report within 14 days.

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.
