Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 2006653.
The culvert that allows all the water from nearby drains has blocked, water is now gushing out of numerous drains. The property owner has maintained them to keep them clear however, the problem is deep within the culvert and requires some jet-flushing. Caller is more than happy to meet on site/ discuss via phone.

The drainage pipe and drain remain blocked causing water to continue being forced up from the underground pipe in the bank and eroding the embankment soil with the holes now much larger and greater in number. The water continues to run along the road margin and is now eroding the tarmac margins and around the drain cover, plus with the additional car wash now accelerating the bank erosion. I would kindly request this issue is investigated, otherwise I fear that within a short period of time, the bank and soil foundation adjacent to the wall maybe compromised, leading to the collapse of the wall and upper bank. I continue to keep the surrounding drains clear of debris weekly, especially the one below the old school house, as if not cleaned, continues to divert the water down the road at street level to the junction of the A368, causing the junction to be seriously flooded.
