Maintaining roads

Report standing water, flooding or blocked drains

Blocked drains

Devon has approximately 180,000 gullies. Our drainage features are cleaned as part of a cyclic programme.

To see when a drain was last cleaned please view our interactive map. You will also be able to see how often the drain is cleaned.

Flooding and standing water

If it’s an emergency and there is a danger to life as a result of flooding please call 999.

If a river is flooding please contact the Environment Agency on 0345 988 1188.

We will take action if,

  • Standing water is present 24 hours after rain has stopped and
  • Where there is a speed limit of 40mph or more in force and
  • Where road users can reasonably travel at 40mph or above
