Drain blocked and running water.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

I reported this blocked drain and running water that is now all over the street and pavement. I now note that you have closed the investigation and passed it to Thames Water, however, I reported it to Thames Water before I reported it to you, they said it was not their responsibility but yours!!!! Someone please fix this problem as it is not only dangerous but an incredible waste of water!!

  • These drains are flowing extremely freely with a lot of surface water. In the event of severe cold weather this area will become extremely dangerous with ice for both motorists and perdestrians. These need to be fixed before there is a serious accident, certainly earlier than 6th January as the current update indicates.
