Drains and grids

Drains and grids collect water that runs off the roads and pavements and have a metal grill cover. Tell us about drains or grids on pavements and roads that are raised or sunken as these may cause a hazard. We also need to know if a drain is blocked, eg if rain water is pooling on the surface and not draining away.

Please answer all the questions in our online form as clearly and accurately as you can to help us deal with the issue you are reporting. 

If you want to report flooding of property please report this by phone as follows. 

  • Monday to Friday 8.45am to 5pm - phone 0161 253 5353
  • Out of hours - phone 0161 253 6606
