Blocked drains.

Reported in the Blocked drain category anonymously at 06:25, Fri 15 June 2018

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 1340280.

There are three adjacent drains on the north side of Bannerdown Road in front of our property. So much debris has been washed down that the drains are not only blocked but invisible. I cleared it once but it has recurred. Last time a council team cleared the drains the one covered was not properly seated. I do not know how significant this is to the present problem.

  • This is still blocked and weeds are starting to grow on top of the drain.

  • This problem was reported in June 2018, re-reported October 2018 and still, six months on, no action has been taken. The photograph I have uploaded was taken yesterday. As a result of the inaction the problem has significantly worsened and the block is no longer restricted to only the drain cover area but extends further up the drainage channel. It will all need clearing. Please arrange for total clearance promptly.
