Drainage or Runoff

2960 N Lakewood CT

Case Date:
3/22/2019

We would like to buy the lot recently given address 2950 Lakewood Ct. (47404). On the property line is a drainage outlet which creates a serious flow of water. I'm worried about erosion and would like minimally some rocks placed at the outlet. The photo shows where the water collects downstream of the drain.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1150 W Acuff Rd, Bloomington, Indiana, 47404

Case Date:
3/19/2019

We live on the corner of Acuff Road and Kinser Pike. Under the thick layer of soil and big pile of leaves lies our metal storm drain. Rain rushes and washes dirt from the farm field behind our house via the deep trench along the side of Acuff Road (obviously we have NO curbs or rain gutters), and all that debris ends up on top of our storm drain. The drain is consistently covered and therefore clogged, so all the rain water rushes right over it and flows onto Kinser Pike. We are constantly cleaning all the collected debris from the grate even though we pay for this cleaning/maintenance service on our monthly water bill. We are in desperate need of a solution to this problem.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

1150 W Acuff Rd, Bloomington, Indiana, 47404

Case Date:
3/19/2019

Our residence is 1002 W. Acuff Road. We're the only house on that road, but we have NO curbs!! Rain and water has cut a trench along the road which makes it difficult to mow our grass. All the rain and water washes dirt from the farm field behind our house through the trench and all the debris completely covers our storm drain on the corner (near the pole in the picture), and the water washes all across Kinser Pike rather than going in the drain. People are constantly driving through our yard and cutting the corner where the storm drain is. We are CONSTANTLY cleaning out the drain ourselves. We REALLY NEED curbs on Acuff Road. Please help!!!!!

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

422 E Allen ST

Case Date:
3/15/2019

At the corner of Allen and Palmer the rain has created a gully that is below the storm sewer. The water continues around the corner and south (downhill) on Palmer creating a strong washout of the asphalt. The storm sewer at the bottom of the hill in front of 1005 S Palmer collects chunks of asphalt and the gully gets wider with every rain event

Drainage or Runoff

1101-1141 E 3rd St, Bloomington, Indiana, 47405

Case Date:

The culvert that runs under Washington St. at Davis seems to be mostly blocked by debris again. Yesterday after the rain water was barely moving through. This usually means that the next major rainstorm will cause flooding on Washington.

Drainage or Runoff

1107 W 6th ST

Case Date:
3/14/2019

In the easement at the back of my property there is an old water meter. (I think it is abandoned and that it probably belonged to the house that also abuts the easement. It is full of clear water and this water is flowing out into my backyard and turning it into a swamp. I'm not sure what is going on, where the water is coming from, etc., but the fact that it is clear leads me to think that it is coming from the city's water mains. The lid was off of the meter when I found it. It may not show in the image, but it is full of water and, as you can see, the water is seeping out.

Drainage or Runoff

1725 E Hunter AVE

Case Date:
3/13/2019

After the heavy storm a month ago the parking strip (city property) in front of 1725 East Hunter Ave was severely eroded with the gravel/crushed stone swept down the street and the tarmac beginning to crumble. The city installed a storm water sewer in this location a couple of years ago but it doesn't catch the surface drainage from Hunter. The upstream neighbour has heavy round river pebbles in their parking strip which seem to resist erosion. Could something like this be put in the problem area? Or is there some other solution?

Water Utility Problems

463 S Bay Hill CT

Case Date:
3/4/2019

I am having an issue with the pipes in my house vibrating for the last two weeks. The issue started on Feb 19 and has persisted since. The issue only happens during the day when the temp seems to be above 35. It happened Friday and Saturday over the weekend, but not on Sunday. I can hear tings in the wall that I never heard in the past. I have checked the water meter in the yard and over a time frame of 2-3 hours during the vibration there is 0.00 gal of water in use, but I have noticed when the pipes are vibrating my neighbors water meter is going up fast even when nobody is home, but when the vibrating is not going on their usage is none. It sounds like it could be air in the pipes or a high water pressure. I have flushed all pipes in my house and then turned the water back on and the issue is not fixed. Called a plumber and they could not figure out the problem.
