Two blocked drains in box tree lane.

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:13, Mon 3 December 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

When it rains the drains in box tree lane back up with water but eventually empty, but the two out side of my property take much longer and have an impact on my surface water drainage from my property.

Council ref: ENQ18820659

  • It’s been over a month since I reported this. Both drains are still blocked and I have noticed that water is coming up out of the drains and flooding the road even though we have had no rain. Water is obviously being vented into the surface water drainage system.

  • This problem is still outstanding despite not having any substantial rainfall this month the drains are still full. I take this opportunity to remind you that when it does rain this will have an impact on my surface water runoff from my property.

  • I am still waiting for this issue to be resolved. I first reported this issue in December 2018, I cannot believe it takes this long to get a problem with a road drain to be fixed its no wonder we cant get Brexit resolved, its like living in a third world country.
