Rainwater flooding cellars

Reported via desktop anonymously at 16:14, Monday 17 May 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

The drains outside houses around 68, East Street and Gas Alley become blocked and cannot deal with torrential downpours. Today (17/5/21) the fire service were called to deal with flooding that covered the pavement and entered the cellars on either side of the road. Not the first time that this has happened.

Council ref: ENQ21894852

  • This report has been closed. However the issue has been passed to the relevant team for consideration for future programmed works. When visiting this site I spoke to the resident regarding sandbags and replacement of the cellar cover as I felt this is more likely the issue but have also passed the information onto our Drainage Team to investigate, if they feel they need to. Regards
