Overflowing Drain

Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category by Angela Deacon at 08:35, Thursday 4 April 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5804437.

This is a drain that overflows in wet weather. There are metal fences surrounding the area to keep the public away. It is a sewer drain and sewage escapes into the nearer stream polluting it. It is a chalk stream which is a protected habitat Dogmas swimming downstream in Hughenden Park are getting sick. What are you going to do about it? If it is the Water Board concern then put pressure on them to resolve the matter. This has been a problem for a while

  • 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.
