Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

Case Date:
12/14/2018

Sorry if this is a repeat, I'm having a devil of a time with the website. This is a follow up to ticket #166390, in which Phil Peden indicated he wanted to see it when it rains. This is a view to the west from the sidewalk on the west side of Rogers St at about 9th street, between Bloomington Iron Metal (right of photo) and 501 N Rogers. The two problematic tributaries are labelled in the photo. They meet just to the left of the photo, which is exactly where the sidewalk crosses the 501 N Rogers driveway, and they flow south from there. Tributary A runs eastward along the north side of the pavement there, and then fans out where the pavement seam starts, and poses the larger problem because it is too wide to step over. Tributary B handles a large volume of water, but in light rain you can hop over it onto a manhole cover (marked "communications") that is just to the right of the photo. If a trench was dug in the dirt along the north side of the asphalt, extending all the way from the fence to the sidewalk, then A and B could probably be forced to join directly at the photographer's feet. Then it is just a matter of digging a trench under the sidewalk to the existing (and dry) rain gutter just behind the photographer. Thank you!!!!
