2 drains at bottom of Waterfurlong before the small bridge

Reported via mobile in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 15:42, Wed 21 June 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 462912.

Both road drains partially blocked. During recent storms the water level on the road rose due to the blocked drains, flooded over the bridge, down our drive and flooded our garage. Please can the drains be cleared out?

  • Drains still blocked. Large pool of water today as pictured. We stood out in the rain trying to keep the drains working. If the water overflows the bridge pictured then it floods down into our garage conversion. Please arrange for the drains to be cleared, thanks.

  • These drains are still blocked, with a large pool of stagnant standing water blocking access to the Town Meadows. When is the delivery gang scheduled to attend to this please?

  • Please clear the drains ASAP, high risk of flooding into our house. The drains are blocked with silt.
