Why does water come up and out?

I have lived in quite a diverse range of places in this country and overseas and have noted that, where the roads actually have drains, the water generally goes down the drain and goes off into the system.

But in the Battle area water comes up out of the drains far more often than I have seen it anywhere else.

Do any of your readers know why this area is different?
