Blocked drains

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 20:34, Saturday 19 June 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 399142.

All the drains in West Elloe are filled with leaves, sludge and mud and they ALL need clearing. I have been assured on several occasions by Lincolnshire county council highways that these drains are cleared every May. Not this year. Why not? I attach a photo of a sample blocked drain.

  • 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. If the problem recurs in less extreme conditions please report this again. Thank you for reporting this matter.

  • Your response is still awaited. When were the drains cleared? They should have been done in May on your annual cleaning programme.
