Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1315 W 6th ST

Case Date:
6/10/2019

I filed a report about three weeks ago about a blocked storm drain that keeps overflowing and spilling water into our yard. It overflowed yesterday, and it's like a river of water running over the street and into our yard. The water is doing considerable damage to our side and back yard--it's basically underwater whenever it rains. This really does require some serious attention. Either a more thorough clean up or repair. It's costing us 100s if not 1000s of dollars in repairs to our yard. Please try to fix this. The storm drain is clogged on the 1300 block of W 6th Street, and our house is 1315 west 6th street.

Corner of RCA Park and Susie St. During heavy rains manhole cover lid comes up into street spurting water from sewer. Ditch next to Susie St has debris and overgrown trees that cause flooding into yards and during heavy rains water from storm sewer lid being open causes water to drain onto Susie St causing driveways to flood and cause damage to surrounding areas

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

901 W 11th ST

The storm pipe/drain does not appear to have sufficient capacity to handle flash flood events. Storm water from the neighborhood overflowed from the street, and then flowed across the neighbor's driveway and down the slope into our property, flooding our crawl space. Last night there was literally a small river of water running aside and into our house, moving so fast that I could not safely walk outside until the rain subsided. We need an engineer to evaluate the current drainage system, in particular the capacity of the storm pipe and culvert that runs directly between our property and the neighbor's. We can make some mitigating improvements on our own property, but we really are not equipped to handle the sheer volume of stormwater from the entire neighborhood during very heavy periods of rain like we saw last night. I took some videos during the flood that we can send as well.
