Blocked rain water drain

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 15:19, Wednesday 15 January 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 18 minutes later

This is a blocked RAIN WATER DRAIN not mains drain as mentioned previously. This could be why you think TW should fix the issue. ? Having spoken to Thames Water in the Summer the rain water drain is not theirs. This has always been a highways/council drain and has always been maintained by highways/council.

Council ref: ENQ20853705

  • We have manually (with a bucket) moved to the water. The rain drain is still blocked and now we have a huge puddle again. Due to the rain today. The pipe just below the drain is completely blocked the water is not flowing through it. This pipe connects to other drain just across the road. This has been going on now for months, I’ve phoned I’ve messaged but no one is fixing the issue.

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage is being investigated by our Highways Drainage Technician and he will take the appropriate action to clear the gully once he has established it is definitely OCC maintained. He is due on site tomorrow (31st) to check everything. Thank you.
