Drain on Main Street outside 25 & 23 Main Street

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 21:30, Wed 9 January 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Capture tank under drain (last cleaned in 2016) appears to be full (pic 1) and culvert behind this is becoming very blocked as a result (pic 2). If this is not cleared the drain will block completely and is likely to flood Main Street after heavy rain. Due to the flatfish nature of this part of the road and this drain being a key run-off point.

  • This problem is worsening rapidly since reporting and the street drain (and the culvert taking water away) will be completely blocked soon. This will cause flooding in Main Street if their is any significant downpour (and potentially to properties) if not cleaned/remedied very in coming days/weeks.

    Please can you arrange to have capture tank emptied and culvert jetted ASAP.

  • I reported this over a year ago and the capture tank is full and culvert under listed cottage is now almost completely blocked. Can you please advise when you will come and clear as it must be at a "key stage". Thx.
