Persistent deep flooding near substation

On Ireland Road, Stenness, there is an area on the left hand side which seems to flood frequently. Sometimes this extends towards the other side of the road where there is an electrical substation. It presents a hazard to motorists and pedestrians alike. There is a primary school and new housing development nearby. There is some noxious smell from around there from time to time which makes me wonder if the water is contaminated with effluent or some chemicals which may present an additional health hazard. We moved into the area some months ago and it has been an ongoing problem for some time.
