Drain not draining and back tracking up our drive.

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:17, Fri 4 June 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 398079.

Works were carried out today apparently! It has made absolutely no difference, with hardly any rain today, this drain doesn’t drain the surface water away....It back tracks to our drive way and into the drive. I think it needs further investigation or I suspect it’s been missed. I have been reporting this since 2019.

  • Two of your colleagues came yesterday and couldn’t get the drain cover off to do anything - they failed to remove it or unblock it and said they would report it.

  • I know works are scheduled but now it’s dry you can see this drain is full to the top of solid mud….it will never drain the surface water. Please can you update when work is likely to take place - hopefully before it floods our drive again and again!

  • Hi

    I last reported this existing issue in July 2021 with still no update and it hasn’t been resolved. This has been going on now since 2019!

    Now the bad weather is coming our drive will be flooded again every time it rains.

    When it damages the wall and the pointing where the water sits and the electrics where the lights are on the gate posts I’ll send you the bill.

    I can’t believe that unblocking a drain could take 2 years.
