79/81 College Road, Sleaford

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:50, Tue 24 October 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 475917.

5 houses have been flooded here. Likely cause is a blocked dyke but clearly the highways drain is blocked too which has avoided water draining away.

  • This drain is located next to the bushes 8 to 10 feet from the kerb across the grass and goes under the road and into a ditch on the far side, this is not a drain in the road. Please see picture for approx location. It is a brick sided drain with a sump and a pipe going under the road, currently covered in undergrowth.
