Blocked gulley by garages at The Heights
Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 11:56, Thu 3 August 2023
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4854894.
A gulley outside the garages at The Heights is completely blocked with silt/mud and no water will flow away. It is knocking onto issues with the gulley outside the front door of the house. Thames Water took a look and confirmed it is completely blocked and stopping rain water from flowing away.
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.
