Sewer Problems (Sanitary Sewers)

Case Date:
2/14/2024

Grandview Hills Neighborhood Association report for sewerage on 3617 Post Rd. This report is on behalf of our neighborhood. I have been in contact with Shian'ah Cox at the Health Department regarding a sewer leak on Dec 18, 2023. She came out to take a test. She let me know that the she needed assistance from the Water Utilities to give her access or for them to take the test themselves. As of yesterday Feb 13, 2024 she let me know that she still has not heard back from Water Utilities on steps taken, testing, or results. Our neighbor, Bruce Johnson looked back through his emails and notes to offer other timelines to help give some background on what he has been noticing and who he has contacted. "I contacted Alex Gray with the City on 9/25/23 and alerted her to the problem on Post Road. I called her again on 12/5/23. She told me that she remembered the issue and had taken photos of it on her first visit. My notes show that I first identified the leak in April when I noticed liquid around the flower pot (fiber optic access). The problem was caused by the original fibre optic contractors who were first on site in November of 2022. I have been in contact with ALL of the AEG sub-contractors when they started working in our area again in November of this year. I have contacted Hoosier Fiber networks field supervisor Luis Medina on at least 3 occasions by calling him on his cell phone. In addition I have spoken with Russell Lo (AEG supervisor for the work in our area) 2 or more times about this issue. All of the conduit in our neighborhood that was installed in 2022 was abandoned (left in the ground) and all new conduit was pulled in. None of the subs wanted to repair the problem as they did not cause it. Russell Lo told me some weeks ago that "it was repaired". Indeed the flower pot was reset when the new conduit was installed--but it rapidly filled up with effluent. I understand that you have contacted the City Health Department and that they will test the liquid for fecal bacteria. I have attached photos of the liquid in the flower pot plus the site that I took today. In addition I took a photo of the abandoned conduit on Post Road to the East of 3617 near the intersection of Meadowlark. The liquid drains into that abandoned conduit and it has been full for over a year. The street is platted for a width of 40 feet and the flower pot HAS to be on City property. I have personally witnessed liquid bubbling up and out of the flower pot. I believe that the residence is using a pump to get the waste water up to the sewer. Should anyone have further questions they can email me. Bruce W. Johnson" We need follow up on this problem. The photos can be shared by email on request. Thank you, Gillian Field

Potholes, Other Street Repair

904 N Woodlawn AVE

Case Date:
1/28/2024

Complex, long-standing problem: water pools and has nowhere to drain to on Woodlawn just north of 12th Street and up against the south side of the RR tracks. This isn't such an issue when the temperature is reasonable, but when it freezes it poses a sliding risk when the train is approaching. Major accident just waiting to happen.

Maybe a complex problem, but there is often standing water (rain or shine, but especially when it's been raining) on the sidewalk and the street in the block just east of Walnut on the south side of 12th Street. .

Drainage or Runoff

Case Date:
1/28/2024

Hello, I live at 404 E 1st Street and walk to work at the university. Since it has been raining steadily for days, the leaves have moved into the street gutters and are blocking/clogging the gutters and grated drains all throughout this neighborhood. With the new 2023 leaf recycling law, most of the neighborhood did not rake and remove the leaves (my neighbor at 402 has the front yard filled with leaves, a rental unit) and the recent windy weather has blown the leaves everywhere and now the rain has moved them into the areas that I mentioned. This problem is causing excessive water to gather on my property. Please send out crews this week to clean up the leaf problem before there is a major flood in this neighborhood because the forecast is for another 10 days of rain. Thank you, ELIDA C. BEHAR January 28, 2024

Drainage or Runoff

213 E Cottage Grove AVE

Case Date:
1/26/2024

There is water constantly flowing out of the ground on the alley east of 213 E. Cottage Grove about 40 feet north of the street. The water is bubbling up and flowing south to the street then flowing east to Lincoln. When it was cold recently a glacier formed there that was dangerous to walk or drive on. It i now getting swampy there - still dangerous but in a different way. Both City Utilities and property owner were notified, but it is not clear if anyone has determined where the water is coming from. Good to check the meters in the area, e.g., 701 N. Lincoln, 700 N. Washington, 706 N. Washington for any unexpectedly high usage.

126 S Clark ST

Case Date:

The asphalt on South Clark was recently repaired (I assume because of a recent water main break), and the new asphalt has sunk in somewhat. It's not clear that it's safe. This is on the street at the end of a driveway between 126 and 128 South Clark Street.

Circle Dr, Bloomington, IN 47401, USA

Case Date:
12/25/2023

There is a broken water pipe near the fire hydrant where Circle Drive meets the 1800 block of Southdowns. Work was done previously to try and fix the problem, but the problem has returned or there is a new problem. I walk pass this site regularly, and water is present even when it has not rained for weeks. The pavement is beginning to show the effects of ever-present water.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

Case Date:
12/14/2023

Hello, For several months now I have noticed a large wet patch on the side of W. Bloomfield Rd in between the entrance to the Twin Lakes Rec Center and the entrance to the lower ball field. The water overflows onto the the west-bound lane of W. Bloomfield Rd as it runs down the hill. The fact that the area never dries up makes me think some sort of water line may be leaking. I just wanted to bring it to your attention because when winter really sets in I am concerned that west-bound lane will be a sheet of ice. Thanks for your time. Thanks, Matt
