Drains not working

Reported via mobile in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 13:40, Friday 18 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 357889.

This is the drain at the dip in plantation road. I have had to clear the leaves from it twice today to stop the water flooding down my drive. All the drains going north towards the golf club appear blocked so this drain is handling the entire runoff. In addition this drain is raised which means that there is a constant puddle here.

  • Customer called to advise that the water still goes along his driveway, and this happens everytime when rains and winter time. Also customer advised that the problem doesn't seems to be because the drains are bloked. The water goes directly on top of the draines and this can be a more fundamental problem. Customer is more then happy to explain all to a member of team as it is difficult to understand and explaine in writting. Customer contact details are added to the report. Also the water that floods his property killed customer hedge.
    Please can this be inspected and someone get in touch with customer?
