Noisy obstruction to drainage and spouts of water

Reported via desktop in the Drainage category anonymously at 14:16, Tuesday 13 July 2021 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2861753.

I called Thames Wter to view a noisy manhole occasionally spouting water in the road outside 11 Hedge End Woodstock OX20 1NP. They say it is waste water not sewage and a Highways responsibility not TW. There is development of 300 houses - some now occupied - on the fields to the south of where I live and TW think the problem may relate to an inappropriately aligned joining drain. Please could someone visit to try to resolve the problem which will only get worse as a further 250 homes come 'on stream'. Thanks.

  • Thank you for your report. Unfortunately we only have a budget for emergency drainage issues such as flooding at the moment.
    However, this gully is on a cyclic maintenance programme and will be checked during this routine inspection. Thank you.
