Water Utility Problems

1010 S Greenwood AVE

Case Date:
11/22/2017

Question: why do my house plumbing leaks occur when lots of people leave town for vacation? This happens not every vacation, but most of the leaks in my house have occurred like today, at vacation time, or 4th of july, etc. Is it that city water pressure to my house goes up then? Do you try to regulate pressure for this vacation exodus?

We had a water main break a few feet from this location about 6 months ago. I know a utility worker came out and said there was no issue, but you might want to double check. Seems like a lot of water to just randomly show up.

Reported to Mike Carter via email 1/11/18. Reporting to uReport as well. FYI. With the new snow, it’s a lot easier to see where the leak is at. I hope you had a nice long weekend… Best, Rick On Jan 11, 2018, at 2:27 PM, Rick Birch Dietz wrote: Mike, here’s the scoop on the leak we discussed. Thanks! I live at 1500 E Maxwell Ln. I’m at the SE corner of Maxwell and Sheridan. There appears to be water pooling on east side of Sheridan near the western entrance to my driveway. I noticed ice here a few times last winter but thought it was just frozen road runoff and it wasn’t super cold last year so ice build-up wasn’t significant. But it’s been well below freezing and there shouldn’t be standing water. I didn’t observe anything like this in the spring, summer or fall. I assume there’s a small water line leak underground, perhaps underneath the road. The road is cracked along the edge so there may be some freeze/thaw going on. It doesn’t seem to be an emergency — the flow seems pretty minimal but it does generate some ice south of the wet area when below freezing. I wanted to report this now that I realize what is going on. I placed a stake with orange flagging tape in the area where it seems like water is coming to the surface. Thanks for looking into this. Thanks, R <IMG_4655.jpeg>

Hello, I was mowing today and noticed that it looks like there is a hole in my water cover in my yard. I'm not sure if this is an issue or why it is there. Any information or help would be great. Thanks!

After installing the smart water meter CBU nor their contracted service provider left notification on our door that installation had occurred. On Monday of this week, CBU dug around the meter and within hours several water issues were present in our home. Debris in our drinking water (again not notified of work done, w tag on our door) seal blown off our dishwasher pump rendering it useless, and water saturating our carpet in the Living room. All occurring within hours of CBU being around the meter and digging. We have contacted and spoken with both contracted service personnel as well as the meter dept at CBU. We are currently in communication with assistant director. Today a service meter technician came to our property to take pics and "plugged" the smart meter back in to a housing that it had come undone from as per Ken Johnson. Again, we were home, the meter was handled and no courtesy knock or paper notice was put on our door . This is unacceptable as we had just been on the phone with CBU sharing our concerns. CBU Protocol has not been followed, drinking water was not safe guarded for my family, digging around a meter with no courtesy tag left on the door, meters installed with no courtesy tag left on the door including notice to flush the system or # to contact if there were issues, meter equipment not "plugged in" as per Johnson, and water leaks in our home which now require jack hammering into the slab. This is a deep concern of water safety, CBU Protocol disregarded, and extensive repair cost (3k or more). Mike Colliver (317)590-0115

Resident at 4445 E. Moores Pike called to report neighbor's yard waste that piles up next to her property. It's a small pile of brush right now, but in the past has been very large and attracting wasp nests, etc. Neighbor places yard waste next to the old water pump station.
