Gully backed-up during heavy rain, Holmes Street

Reported via mobile in the Gully/Drainage category anonymously at 21:18, Monday 3 May 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

The burst of heavy rain experienced this evening put considerable pressure onto this marked gully on Holmes Street, which completely backed-up and flooded, putting more pressure on the two gullies at the very end of the street to drain the water runoff. It should be noted that this gully - all the gullies on the street actually - have not been cleared/serviced in years, so the time is now for them all to be cleared to prevent further blockage and flooding.

  • Update - And this is what the gully looks like today after just a light shower of rain. Safe to say this gully no longer drains any water at all when it is needed.
