Drain does not flow

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:19, Tuesday 20 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 462726.

This drain has not been cleaned for over a year and floods when too much rain comes as per the photo my drive and footpath is now flooded. The water company say this is the councils and not there’s to look after, as I have already rang them.

  • Can I please have an update as I have not had an update since June and now the weather turning I feel this issue needs to be fixed and the lack of communication is very poor from the council. As you can see the drain is more blocked now and vegetation is now growing in the drain due to it being so blocked.
