In between entrance to SWR School and Azaelia Close
Reported via mobile in the Flooding on a road/footpath category anonymously at 13:58, Monday 12 February 2024
Sent to Buckinghamshire Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5566321.
There appears to be a water leak coming from the school/community centre grounds, this can be seen in the grounds with deep surface water of garden. This is running over the pavement and not being able to drain due to the drain on the road being blocked. Both the leak in the school/community centre and the blocked drain need addressing. A number of years ago in the same area a main burst and led to homes being evacuated.
If the flooding is caused by a water leak we will report it to the relevant water company, who are responsible for water leaks.
There are occasions when flash flooding overloads the drain/gully, even when a drain/gully is clean and well maintained it can only cope with a certain volume of water at one time, a sudden and heavy downpour can still cause flooding especially if the road is in a low lying area, this generally clears away over a matter of hours.
The Highway Officer is only able to inspect the drain when the water has cleared away, this will be done within 10 days and if required, an order will be raised to clear the drain.
