Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 10:10, Thu 7 November 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The underground drain is blocked between two gratings so that water comes out of the grating upstream of the Old Farm, flows down the road and then disappears at the next grating downstream of the Old Farm. Today we have dramatic soaking of a garage wall and gateway due to splashing caused by passing traffic.

  • Your team worked on the problem Tuesday 3rd December, thought they had solved it - but regret now to advise the side of the road is still flooded even though there was not that much rain last night. So as before, water comes out of a drain upstream of us and goes down the drain outside our gate.

  • Must again advise that although I admit we have had a lot of rain, there is now a major stream flowing past our entrance, creating a huge puddle and spraying a mass of water over our garage wall (and letter box) every time a vehicle passes.
