Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

All surface water run-off and treated sewage effluent from the Welcome Break Wheatley Motorway Services Area drains to the bottom corner of the site and then is discharged via a drain that runs underneath the M40 Spur to the River Tame. This drain has become partially blocked and does not discharge rapidly enough anymore. It urgently needs to be cleaned out.
