Severe flooding Tatham Road lower end

Reported in the Drainage category anonymously at 19:29, Wed 12 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

After the heavy rain today the road flooded outside No 1 ,3 and 5 Tatham Road as the drain particularly outside no 3, cannot cope with excess water. This has caused water to flow down the sloping lower lying drives of these houses causing flooding in garages, which is integral in the case of nos 1 and 3. A cars come down the road they cause the wash to flow down the drives. If there were kerbstones with drainage holes on the opposite side of the road, water could drain into the lower lying field opposite. The drain often seems to be blocked and cannot cope with excess water. This has been a problem in the past.

  • The road drain outside Now is clearly blocked, no flood water flowed down it. This is an urgent problem to avoid flooding of the houses and garages of number 1, 3 and 5. Please send the Gully Cleaner urgently.
