#95 hedgerley lane to lakes lane

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 15:40, Sun 6 October 2019

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council 7 minutes later

Local drains aren't draining, water from Hedgerley Lane and Lakes Lane are accumulating at the road junction and it's not draining away. Has been reported numerous times and it remains an issue - impassable by pedestrians. Assume drains need to be unblocked again, however they appear to be unable to cope with any significant rain fall.

  • 23/11 Following light rain yesterday, the water built up again and the rain today has caused further flooding of the road making it impassable to pedestrians yet again. The status says actions scheduled but there has been no action taken in over a month - when will this be resolved or how do I need to escalate this issue?

  • 26/11 Street has been flooded all week even with little rain, called council for an update, unable to provide any schedule of work, problem reference is 40112921

  • 26/11 Flooding isn't draining away, even with little / no rain. It now appears that the sewage manhole cover in the middle of the road outside #95 Hedgerley lane is flooding further sewage into the street - there is now a sewage smell in the area. This has been reported to Thames Water however their resolution may be dependent on resolving the original issue with the blocked drains.

  • 27/11 Thames Water have unblocked sewer and pumped out sewage from overflowing man hole cover however following overnight rain, the road is again flooded as drains / gulleys blocked and unable to cope

  • 28/11 Road still under water, Affinity Water unable to access water meter to take reading today

  • 4/12 Drains have been cleared and to date, no flooding (note that there hasn't been any signicant rain in this period). However, the road is covered in mud and leaves and this needs to be cleaned before any further rain as this will be washed into the drains causing further blockages.

  • 24/12 Road is still under water (13 days) and is not draining away. Even with no rain, the water is pouring out of the drain by the water hydrant outside number 79 Hedgerley Lane and this is flowing down the lane to the junction with Lake Lane. This has now been an issue for 2 months - could someone update me with proposed actions and schedule to resolve this issue?

  • 7/2 The four drains outside of No. 97 & No. 95 have been cleared today but the 5 drains from No. 79 to No. 93 Hedgerley Lane are still blocked - future rain will still flow down Hedgerley Lane to the junction of Lakes Lane and overwhelm the cleared drains.
