Park Street opposite aquavale carpark

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 17:21, Sat 6 June 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The drains on park street are full to the brim with mud and leaf litter etc, both the road and the pavement drains. Each time this issue gets reported by you send the road sweeper down the road and report it fixed. The whole drain system needs emptying, before my house floods from a bit of rain. This issue has been present for over 2 years. Directly outside 165 park street seems the worst effected as it's the lowest dip in the road. The alley way between the terrace houses is flooded at present, the only reason it's not flooding my back garden is that there is a slight step up. It's just a thunder storm, the drains should be able to handle it. Please can the work to rectify this proportionally match the issue at hand. Perhaps have it inspected before carrying out work rather than taking my word for it. I dug 4ft of sludge out of the road drain last year which helped for a little while. It's full again now unfortunately. Please help.

  • There was another storm last night, and another flood.

  • This is the road after 10 minutes heavy rain. The cars are through no fault of their own, splashing water into the lower parking area which also has blocked drains. The path then floods sometimes up to our front door.

  • This is getting quite urgent now. Please clear the drains before my house floods. It's up to my door, maybe an inch before it comes in the house. This isn't a river with burst banks, it's rain. Please clear the drainage system.
