Plastic box stuck in culvert

Reported via mobile in the Culvert category anonymously at 12:52, Wednesday 19 June 2024

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6127339.

There appears to be a plastic box stuck in the culvert about halfway across which could cause water to back up and surcharge in the event of heavy rainfall. I maintain the bank next to my property and noticed it while strimming - I have no idea how long its been there but water came within 2" of flooding my drive and garage recently so this is a cause for concern and needs to be removed. I don't have anything long enough to remove it.

  • Thank you for the update. I am concerned that there may be storm events following this period of hot weather and that previously the water in this stream was 2” short of flooding residential properties and outbuildings - see attached image - so I feel it should be given a higher priority.

  • Apparently a chap turned up but without welly boots and with no means to retrieve it. To be clear it’s about 4-5m into the culvert so they will need something to get it out - if it were easy I would have done it myself.
