Water not clearing flooding pathway

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2358287.

You have previously been to deal with this, but the problem persists. I believe the blockage is further down the pipe that around the drain which you cleaned out. The previous report's reference number is 2326474.

  • Although the water does drain, it is very slow to drain. Any heavy rain overwhelms the drain and forms a large puddle in the centre of the walkway. The problem apears to be not at the drain but further down the waste pipe. I am aware that someone came and took some pictures but this was on a dry day and there was no water.
