Flooding pics

Posted by davidburbage on July 21, 2007

We visited the people living in the ground floor of the flats on the top left of the picture whose downstairs had been flooded largely as a result of lorry drivers going through deep water and creating waves into their houses.

    David,

    The flooding appears to have occured on roads that dip due to the natural contours of the land. Can the Council investigate these areas and try to find a solution. I know the Bath Road (Highway) and Wooton Way areas well and we seem to be hit, to different extents by rainwater build up everytime a really heavy shower hits.

    Thanks

    Jason

    PS – I’m enjoying reading the blog!
