Sunken drain - Soak away drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:34, Wednesday 6 March 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5675522.

A soak away drain has sunken down into the floor, the rain water from the main roads run down into this drain. This was repaired back in 2020. This main drain is on the footpath but the soak away drain sits on partially on the driveway of No.3 Burdett Drive. Thames Water inspected this and advised this is a council drain. Please can this be inspected as repaired as soon as possible, thank you.

Updates

  • This has been passed to the Highway Officer 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.

    The Highway Officer is only able to inspect the drain when the water has cleared away, this will be done within 10 days and if required, an order will be raised to clear the drain.
