Drain causing private drive to flood

Reported via desktop in the Other public drainage issue category anonymously at 10:56, Mon 12 July 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2857910.

The drain seems to be full of muck and the drain is blocked. This has been cleaned about 5 months ago but it is still the same. This has been going on for a long time. She said that the water is going on to the drive and causing a lot of damage. The lady said if the kerbs were there or if they were higher, it would stop the water to come into her drive and cause damage. Please can someone contact her in regards to this issue.

  • This gully has been cleansed, there was some detritus in the pot that has been removed however the outlet pipe is just below the cover, therefore unless the silt was to the top of the cover the drain would still work, we also rodded the pipe and cleaned the ditch where this outfalls.
