Blocked drain causing flooding

Reported in the Blocked drainage gully category anonymously at 16:15, Monday 17 August 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2250053.

I’ve had a complaint in from a resident regarding a blocked drain between 118 and 119 Hinchcliffe in Orton Goldhay. I understand this is a long-standing problem and he says he has to wade through several inches of water to get to his car.

I would be grateful if someone would please investigate his complaint and come back to me this week.

Very many thanks.

  • We have inspected the gullies in this vicinity all were free from detritus but holding water, we then lifted the manhole outside 116 Hinchcliffe and this was full of silt, this is an Anglian Water manhole and we have informed them that this needs cleansing, in order for our gullies to freely discharge.
