Flooding in Gorwell

Reported via iOS in the Drainage category anonymously at 20:08, Saturday 25 July 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Think this is on the list for repair but the blockage of the drains where Gorwel feeds into the system on Brook Street really needs looking at please. The manhole has been lifted off at the bottom of Gorwell because of the force of water, and it is all backing up Gorwell yet Brook Street and the brook are comparatively dry and the drains are taking the water happily.

I don’t think this is a ground water problem especially as it has been so dry, and this is a new problem that’s only started in the last 18 months or so, it was never a problem before that.
