A road drain or road gully is a smaller chamber covered by a metal grate, found on the edge of a highway. It is used to collect surface water from the highway, and may then lead to a public sewer.
Dudley Council is responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of pedestrian street drains and gullies that are on the public highway. These are the gullies that run along the kerbside, carrying rainwater away. The Council cleans and maintains over 36,500 gullies (or drains) in the Borough.
Please use our Street Maintenance Form to report a problem with a drain or gully (e.g. blockages) or contact us if you have dropped something (e.g. keys) accidentally into the gully.
Please note that all reports of gullies being misused will be dealt with confidentially
We need the exact location of the problem, and information about any damage.
