Flooded road

Reported via mobile in the Drainage category anonymously at 10:10, Tuesday 26 September 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

Road floods with little rain. The problem has accured for the last 4 or 5 years and it takes around a week for the water to go. There is no other problem in the area like this. So it can only be a problem with the drains on longford close as it dont happen on Whitehouse road Salter close marlborough road an so on.

  • Thank you for your report.

    All storm drains link to main (storm) drains, which are maintained by Thames Water. Many of the storm mains are not large enough anymore for the capacity of water that can fall in flash flooding situations.
    Once the mains are full no further water can be drained away, and can sometimes cause water to surcharge back up the gully causing puddles to form around the gully or drain.
    Once it stops raining the storm main will slowly drain away meaning the current puddle will also drain away. If the issue persists once the rain has stopped then we can investigate further.
