Sewer Problems (Sanitary Sewers)

2638 E Dekist ST

Case Date:
2/8/2019

Yesterday, during the huge mid-day rainstorm, water came up through the floor drain in our basement at 2638 East Dekist Street. It had a sewage odor and was muddy looking and reached a level of about 4 inches, covering the entire floor and soaking everything. The basement toilet also had dirty water come into it. I called the city utilities hotline and reported the incident twice, speaking to the same person each time. The water receded after a couple hours. We have yet to assess the damage and start to clean up. Last year on 2/11/18 our basement toilet erupted (see case #163027). We had a plumber verify that the city sewer was the source of the issue. We did not claim any damages, yet the city did not reimburse us the cost of the plumbing assessment. We would appreciate someone responding to this current incident.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

2737 E Brigs BND

Case Date:
9/3/2019

There is a rainwater drainage ditch and large drain between our yard and our neighbors. During the last few heavy rainstorms, the drain at the end of the ditch stopped draining water, resulting in flooding our yard as well as our neighbors to the south and east. The flooding was at least 3-4 feet deep and spilled into the swale at the side of our house, coming close to our basement windows. We do not know if the drain was backed up, clogged with debris or what happened. However, upon checking the drain today with a landscaper, the drain is filled with water almost to the top....and we have not had recent heavy rain in the last few days. Could someone come to check the drain to see if it needs to be opened / cleaned out or if there is some sort of shut-off valve inside that is not operating and allowing water to drain? I am concerned if we get another heavy downpour that water already standing in this drain will result in major flooding again. We have called the street department about this issue twice, and I understand there is some history with drainage problems in this area of Hyde Park.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

2821 E Tapps TURN

Case Date:
2/6/2019

My Name is Josh Goodman and I live at 2821 E Tapps Turn, 47401. My gutters drain into an underground drain tile system (pvc pipe) and, as best as I can tell, this system drains east to west, runs under my backyard, and then hooks into the storm sewer (somewhere underground) on the east side of Sare Rd just north of where Buttonwood Rd intersects Sare Rd. I've been having issues for a while with the system backing up causing water to bubble out of the drain tile and down into the ground right next to the house. This tends to only happen during medium to heavy downpours. I had Roto Rooter come out with their pressurized water snake and camera and we cleaned out the entire system up until the point where it enters the storm sewer, but the issue still persists. There was a little bit of debris (leaves, etc.) but nothing that would cause the issue I'm seeing. Would it be possible for someone in the Utility Department to come out to my property to take a look to see if there is anything that can be done on the City's side to remedy this issue? I can be reached at 812-671-0049. Thanks, Josh

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.
