Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 454964.
Every time we have rain the road gets like this. The drainage channels in the kerb are completely silted up and so the rain can't drain away. We have had council operatives dig a shovel of mud out of them before, but that does not solve the problem, the whole system needs cleaning out.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with standing water covering more than half the road. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about flooding and drainage on our website

Thanks for telling us about the fault. We’ve had a look at it and the drain will be cleaned as part of the next schedule of works.

How can this be "Case Closed" until the drains have been cleaned "as part of the next schedule of works" and the problem does not re-occur.

1 hour of rain and this is the result. It can be seen from the picture of the culvert that there is no flow of water down it, or either of the other two culverts, As can be seen from the picture the water is encroaching my land up the pathway.
