Location of exit pipe in reen

Back in the year 2000 Eastmoor road approx. 10 bungalows flooded, we understand this was caused by the main Lliswerry reen overflowing and maybe breaking its banks as everybody was under the impression that this section of the reen was at least a mtr lower than anywhere else. Recently the NRW have been cleaning the main Lliswerry reen and have now uncovered an outlet pipe that looks like its coming from a drain located near the entrance of Eastmoor road. We would like the council in conjunction with the NRW to investigate this drain and outlet pipe as its clearly half way up on the banks of the reen. Resulting if the reen water level rises the outlet pipe will spill out of the drain and flow into Eastmoore again that may cause flooding. The drain looks like its at a lower level than the banks of the reen. As we all know water will look for the lowest levels. hopefully the pictures give a better understanding on why we have raised this case.
