The drains outside our house on Station Road are completely blocked

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 18:14, Thursday 6 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

These drains are completely blocked an do not offer any capacity/solution during heavy rain or flooding. I have not checked the rest of the road but I am sure they are interlinked and potentially also blocked.

Council ref: ENQ20872974

  • 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
