Drains all broken plus now leaking water main

Reported via mobile anonymously at 21:38, Fri 1 July 2022

Sent to Charnwood Borough Council and Leicestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3641120.

Now a huge amount of water coming into the cellar. Water table is about 6 m down so no reason for water to be coming in. But drains all on the green are full of roots and breaks. Over the last few days lots of water coming in suggests a water mains break as well.

  • You may need to include Photo's, being a Volunteer Flood Warden (for nearby Sileby) this'll give weight to the issue you've raised as it certainly does when I report Flood/Drainage related Probs.

  • This gives an idea of the state of the drains. Check out the roots and steps between pipes. Not sure how much water actually runs through them.
