Off 78 High Street Iver SL0 9NG on the Roundabout with Bagnors Road South, Iver

Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later
Over the last 18 months green like sewage smelling water has been flowing from the rainwater mains incision as per photos onto the roundabout and main road at Bagnors Road South and High Street Iver. It freezes into Ice in the winter. Thames water were called out on the 18th of July who confirmed that the highways department of Bucks County Council were responsible which could require this rainwater drain to be flushed out as green like sewage discharge is continually seeping onto the roundabout / road, whilst we are in the current hot temperatures of 19th July. In the winter the water flows down to the high street and can smell depending on the prevailing rainfall..
Thank you for your report regarding a drainage issue, which has been passed to the Local Area Technician to investigate.
We know that an important part of any road network is the drainage system which is designed to carry water away from the road surface. Even when a gully is clean and well maintained it will 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.
The Local Area Technician will carry out an inspection within 10 days and order a repair if required.
IMPORTANT: If you consider this to be dangerous or an emergency, please call us on 0300 131 6000
Otherwise, by submitting the report online we will deal with it in line with our agreed timescales.
