Drain not working today

Reported in the Drainage category by ROBERT SOMERS at 23:31, Wednesday 19 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

Rainwater running down the left-hand kerbside of Mount View, just before the Give Way Sign, was running over the drain, so it was obviously not working. The overflow was, however, captured by the first drain in Kings Road as the flow turned the left-hand corner.

Council ref: ENQ20858785

  • Thank you for reporting this issue. The gully issue/blockage will be included in our forthcoming gully cleansing programme. As there is a limited budget, we have to prioritise high flood risk areas. Sometimes it is the volume of water that falls, and our drains are unable to cope, but the water eventually disperses. We will continue to monitor this on our routine inspections. Regards
