Catch pits silted up and verge grips overgrown

Reported via iOS in the Drainage category anonymously at 08:21, Monday 12 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

All the catch pits seem to be blocked on the main road into Watlington. Also all the vergeside grips feeding the ditches are blocked or overgrown. This also applies to Station Road where the ditches look relatively clear but the grips don’t exist to get the water into the ditches. Can the catch pits be cleared and a team re-cut the grips, thank you.
