At the last big raised this was a problem and you said you had unlocked these drains - obviously not well enough as it has happened again today. The water has come up to my damp proof course and I have had to open my back gate and create a channel for it to flow in through my back garden. We have lived here nearly 10 years and have never experienced these drains being blocked until this year. I would appreciate it if you could get to the property quickly to prevent further damage.

The drains are located in main street outside the back door of our house (no.10) and in front of the driveway if our neighbor's on main street.

  • Thank you for your report. All four gullies in this location were unblocked and jetted through on the 10.10.19 and are fully operational.
    i have visited this location today,14.11.19 during heavy rainfall and there was no standing water to suggest any drainage issues. The gullies were clear and running free. There covers of the gullies outside number 10 were covered with leaves, which i removed whilst on site. It would be beneficial, particularly during heavy rainfall, to do this on a regular basis if possible.Regards
