River Chess has been overflowing for weeks

Reported via mobile in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 17:22, Friday 14 June 2024

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6109348.

From just past the open air swimming pool to the Chess Business Park the entire road is flooded. I think water is coming from the River Chess. It has been getting progressively worse over the past few weeks.

Updates

  • 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.
