Poor drainage causing damage to wall. Residents getting soaked

Reported via desktop in the Flooding category anonymously at 09:13, Tue 7 December 2021

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 411091.

Standing water on the road outside 19 East Street has cause such significant damage to the wall of the property that the wall has had to be replaced. Residents who are caught by passing traffic when they walk past that spot are complaining of being soaked. Previous requests for action have not resulted in repairs. Please look at this as a matter of some urgency. The water splashing over the footpath causes a slip hazard in icy weather. Please look at this urgently.

  • We are sorry but we are not taking immediate action with this report. An officer has already assessed the road ponding issue at location and spoken to the property owner. Work to add drainage infrastructure near number 19 is being considered but no timescales or guarantees can be provided at this time. Please also note that whilst recent incidents of carriageway flooding in the area are of concern to the Council, the levels of rainfall recorded are noted as significant and it is likely that the proposed work will only mitigate the issue with the main cause of flooding in the area related to the limited capacity of the highway drainage system. A cleanse of the existing highway drains and pipes took place on the 28/10/21 which showed the drainage system running clear to its outfall in the beck. Thank you for reporting this matter.

    State changed to: No further action
