Blocked street drains causing flooding during heavy rain

Reported in the Flooding or standing water on road category anonymously at 23:14, Thu 15 October 2015

Sent to Warwickshire County Council 1 minute later

The street drains outside Merevale House care home need a good clearing. This is an ongoing problem for a few years now and it still hasn't been sorted out. We are now in the rainy season so we can look forward to flooded roads again which also incidently covers the ramp for wheelchair users, not very nice for those in the care home. I would be very grateful if someone can send the drain cleaner down and get this sorted.

  • After the recent heavy rainfall, there was the usual paddling pool outside Merevale Care Home. I had a look at one of the drains and you can see it is blocked right up to the grill cover. The trouble is, this government have starved local government of funding and this may not get fixed until austerity ends. Perhaps the ducks will have moved in by then!

  • Paddling pool still available after heavy rainfall. Should be nice to cool off in during the summer!
