Blocked drains

Reported via desktop anonymously at 10:42, Thursday 25 August 2022

Sent to Hampshire County Council and Hart District Council less than a minute later

In the last week we have had significant rain on two occasions. On Thursday 18th August it rained so hard that water was running off Stevens Hill into Round Close, then down Caswall Ride and into Bannister Gardens. None of the drains could cope with the amount of water because the drains are all blocked with leaves and debris. Consequently the rain water built up at the bottom of Bannister Gardens and flooded at least three houses. Today (25th August) the same thing happened except fortunately the two drains at the bottom of Bannister Gardens could cope with the amount of water even though all the other drains are still blocked.

  • Hampshire highways sent someone to identify the drains that need unblocking. Since then our street has flooded again with several houses suffering water ingression. The problem was reported again and we were told the priority would be elevated. We are still waiting for action!!

  • Drains have been marked with paint but I am not aware that they have been unblocked. There hasn't been any heavy rain so I can't say whether the problem is resolved.

  • A tanker lorry came round last week and spent 2 days attempting to unblock the drains. However when I was walking my dog 2 days ago, it was raining quite heavily and I noticed a drain in Caswell Ride where the water was right up to the top.
