Ground water flooding in front gardens of 71 and 73 Filton Grove

Following any prolonged rainfall ground water comes up through the exposed soil areas in the gardens. This causes the gardens to flood and the flood the pavement outside of the properties. The water will continue to flow for hours after rain has stopped. Wessex water have come to the properties and they believe a ground water pipe from the council owned allotments which runs under 71 Filton Grove may have been blocked and is backing up and the only place to emerge is through the gardens. We are worried about potential subsidence under 69, 71 and 73 Filton Grove if this continues.
