Gutter is very Muddy, so deep I slipped

Reported via desktop in the Cleaning/Sweeping category anonymously at 14:57, Wednesday 22 May 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 2 weeks, 5 days, 21 hours, 57 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 6007375.

The mud in the gutter, exacerbated from the continual water flooding - mostly due to poor drainage has meant mud, rotten foliage and sediment has left a greasy deep muddy covering in the gutter alongside the footpath When crossing the road today I slipped and whilst I didn’t fall completely over, I twisted my spine aggravating an ongoing back issue.

  • If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant water company, who are responsible for water leaks.

    There are occasions when flash flooding overloads the drain/gully, even when a drain/gully is clean and well maintained it can 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, this generally clears away over a matter of hours.

    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.
