Water and muck pouring in to site
Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 16:37, Fri 23 June 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4709428.
This issue was raised earlier today and you the council replied with a poor response, 'even with the drains clear not all water is collected' - the issue here is that you do not carry out regular cleans and maintenance of the metal griddles and as a result they are solid so all rain water and muck is transferring in to site. I cannot be any clearer other than to say we will be documenting all issues caused on our site as a result of problems outside of our premises and therefore your responsibility. Maybe you should be looking to install preventative measures such as water drainage along the dropped curb area........?
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.
