Blocked drain near the head of Wood Lane which is public bridleway not on private land

Reported via desktop in the Drains/Ditches Blocked category anonymously at 08:24, Monday 19 February 2024

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5596979.

This blocked drain was reported fairly recently by a neighbour. It was supposedly dealt with by the Council's contractor. In fact the drain which was cleared was on the opposite side of the road to Wood Lane so the problem remains. Discharge from two houses sewage treatment systems (legitimately I think because one is a sewage treatment plant and the other is a reed bed system) are fed into this drain so at times, when families are all at home, there are quantities of overflow from this drain which then flows down the bridleway.
