  • 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. They are only cleaned once a year unless there are flooding problems and properties are at risk of internal flooding. 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.
