Reported via desktop in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 15:40, Thursday 2 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5926405.

There is flooding in my garden. Thames Water have looked and advised me that the cause is "surface water assets in area owned by the local authority. These assets need to be cleared and flowing" (TW reference SA 1247500). Either a local authority surface water drain is blocked or the soakaway is blocked. This is causing flooding in my garden after rain.

  • 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.
