Flooding and Blocked Drains

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:41, Wed 9 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

There is regular flooding in Tanners Lane; this is caused by the drains being blocked. When the Lane is flooded, the vehicles going through the water are washing the soil from the sides of the lane which turns into a thick slurry of mud which covers the drains completely. This ongoing problem is eroding the surface of the lane well as the verges. Clearly there is a problem with the drainage system which is not coping with the water and needs investigating.

  • Please can we request for the drain outside our house (Stonecliffe) to be cleared of mud and emptied ASAP. The road is flooding ever time we have rain as the drain is full of mud. Due to the continuous flooding the road is deteriorating every day which is creating pots poles, not only outside our house but all along Tanners Lane.

  • This is the state of the road outside Stonecliffe today after the heavy rain last night. As you can see the rain can not drain away as the drain is full of mud. Please can this be dealt with ASAP.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Due to current weather events we have issues with flooding all over the county. If you feel your property is at risk, please contact the emergency services or contact our call centre on 0345 310 11 11 to request sandbags. If this road is impassable, please let the call centre staff know and we can get the road closed or erect flood boards. Once the water has dispersed, we will take a look at the drainage but often it is the volume of water that causes the issue. We will monitor this area on our routine inspections. Regards
