Puddle in road saturating our house as traffic drives through it

Reported via mobile in the Flooding of a road or pavement category anonymously at 16:02, Sun 30 July 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4840492.

Having spoken on site to Bob Arberry, your Clerk of Works Maintenance Schemes, I understand that the above problem is caused by damaged drains and a sunken kerb, both of which ideally should have been sorted out before the resurfacing of the High Street which was completed last Friday.

This problem has gradually got worse over the last few years, what with the increase in rainfall we have seen and, presumably, the deterioration of the drains. This in turn results in the side of our porous stone cottage becoming saturated as the traffic passes through the puddle. I have attached some photos taken today from which you can see the height the water reaches on the wall as well as the puddle itself. The puddle is often far deeper than shown, such that it floods both onto our drive and up and over the crown of the road down Battle Lane.
