Drainage or Runoff

Case Date:
4/14/2022

Last night there was mud and new stones, as well as pretty deep ponding, on W. 17th St. in front of Tri-North Middle School (facing north). Perhaps it’s the first big rain since that project finished? The water, mud, and stones were just pouring down the driveway onto Tri-North. The construction head of the Tri-North project wasn’t very proactive about erosion control from the beginning of the project last year. And the designers must not have been careful enough when planning for rain.

Illegal Dumping in Drainage Easement and Common Conservation areas in Gentry South- Course construction sand (over 100 square feet and up to 10" deep) plus tree brush and other mulched woody material, large insect ridden sawed cut logs (including 47" logs), small rock and trash items have been dumped into the drainage easement area behind my house. The area that serves to hold flood water is being filled in, invasives are taking hold where the sand is, and the large debris is damaging trees. I know the area was free from this for at least 6 years prior, even during record water flow. The first occurrence was in early April 2020 and happened again the next year during early April 2021. These dumps are sudden. It was free of more sand at the end of March. Then, a week later there was suddenly a large dump of sand again. I was quoted $4,000 to remove the first dump of sand. Additionally, someone has dumped what looks like yard mulch/waste twice in this neighborhood’s Common Area/Conservation Easement.

Illegal Discharge (Storm Sewers)

As commonly done when the storm drain is cleaned they dump the debris into the yard which ends up killing the grass I was told that when they clean the drains they're supposed to take the debris with them. I'd appreciate it if they would I've been fighting keeping grass growing here and when the water goes fast if there's no grass growing it takes the topsoil. Thank you

Illegal Discharge (Storm Sewers)

Case Date:
3/24/2021

Walking by 419 Highland Street I have noticed water being discharged from a pipe leading from the house to the street. It appears to be intermittent so I suspect it is from the washing machine. Based on the staining and algae in the street I suspect that it has been going on for some time.
