FREQUENT flooding is making it difficult to get into one of Huddersfield's main household waste recycling sites.
People using the site at Emerald Street, Hillhouse, on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday reported deep, standing water right across the entrance, following heavy rain.
Users say the flooding is not a one-off occurrence. They say it causes major problems for anyone wanting to use the site, even those coming by car.
A Kirklees Council spokeswoman said surface water drains off the road via a soakaway, but this cannot cope during heavy rain.
She said the council had no duty to maintain the road, because it was an unadopted highway.
However, because it leads to a council site, she said the problems were being investigated.
Three gully-emptying wagons were sent to clear standing water on Tuesday, after the problems were reported to the council on Monday.
The council's Highways and Drainage Department also sent a jet washer and a further gully wagon to remove silt from the road gullies.
The spokeswoman added: "Over the next two to three weeks we intend to carry out a camera survey of the drainage system, to see if any further work can be done to improve the dispersal of water during heavy rain."
She said that, in the meantime, people should not try to drive through the deep water.
She said: "We would urge users of the Emerald Street site to use common sense and not try to drive through standing water, if at all poss- ible.
"They should return at a later date, once the flooding has gone."
