Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 20:14, Tue 1 November 2022
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3931205.
Blocked road gullies on Brimmers Hill. Rain unable to drain away so running along road and over dropped kerbs causing flooding into gardens and garages of properties. Causing damage to gardens and items stored in garages.
This has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area.
