  • Thank you for your update. The rain water gully has been recently cleaned and jetted at this location by LBB's drainage contractor. This has been inspected and is visually clear. The carriageway has been mechanically swept also to reduce early leaf fall blocking the gully grill washed down and deposited during rain fall. Additionally, this gully and one further along has been marked for further investigation to ascertain if there is a fault in the main line to have any required remedial works carried out. If the issue is with the Public Surface Water Sewer, Thames Water will be notified to attend accordingly. Heavy rainfall in short bursts can cause localised issues when the water draining through Thames Water’s drainage sewer is flowing at maximum capacity. In these instances the amount of water that can drain away through drainage gullies can be limited, but it would not necessarily always be indicative of a blockage issue within the gulley itself. If the problem persists beyond events of heavy rainfall please do not hesitate to log another report, however additional investigation has been requested and will be carried out in due course. kind regards.
