Flooding problem

Reported in the Flooding category by Cheshire East Council at 13:11, Tuesday 23 June 2020

Sent to Cheshire East Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2169096.

This is not the first time flooding has occurred and completely covered my gardens and drive. On the 16th and 17th June, due to the heavy downpours, yet again, the two main drains were unable to cope, causing heavy flooding on this particular corner. With the help of neighbours we tried to dispurse the water from coming underneath our houses, in order to protect our properties. I am failing to understand why these drains do not do the work they are intended for. I look forward to hearing from the Council on suggestions of what can be done to alleviate this extremely worrying problem before another downpour occurs.
