The drain is blocked and there is sludge to approximately 2 inches from the grill. The water has nowhere to go and the contents of sludge and dirt spills over onto properties and blocks other drainage systems. This in turn creates more work and anxiety as the water is lapping at front doors even with a small amount of rain.

    After last nights rain this has become a health and safety issue as the drain is blocked and the sludge is blocking other drains. The smell is extremely strong and the sludge is hazardous to walk across. I have had to put sand bags at my front doorstep due to the flow of water created by the blocked drain.

  • Due to the rain Saturday night and Sunday morning I have been on high alert with sandbags. This issue needs to be resolved before there is water ingress to properties. The drain is still blocked.

  • This has taken an extra long time to be addressed and be resolved. What concerns me is damage (as in water ingress) to not only my property but the neighbours plus the health and safety factor. Additional pictures were added yesterday.
