Drainage or Runoff

1315 W 6th ST

Case Date:

We had a massive overflow of the drainage ditch next to our house after tonight's (2/20) storm. There must be some blockage at the end of the drain because water poured out of the ditch and basically covered our half of our backyard. The ditch either needs to be dug deeper and/or it needs to be cleared of debris in order to assure adequate drainage. We have photos for visual evidence but were unable to upload them through this website. Thank you for your attention to the matter.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1315 W 6th ST

Case Date:

I filed a report about three weeks ago about a blocked storm drain that keeps overflowing and spilling water into our yard. It overflowed yesterday, and it's like a river of water running over the street and into our yard. The water is doing considerable damage to our side and back yard--it's basically underwater whenever it rains. This really does require some serious attention. Either a more thorough clean up or repair. It's costing us 100s if not 1000s of dollars in repairs to our yard. Please try to fix this. The storm drain is clogged on the 1300 block of W 6th Street, and our house is 1315 west 6th street.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

1400 E Pickwick Pl, Bloomington, IN 47401, USA

Case Date:

There are three water drains in the road on Pickwick, just east of the corner. They are all far below the new road surface. Please have someone come take a look. Think what it would be like to ride across them on a bike or scooter at speed after taking the long downhill leading to them. I don't know if they can be fixed now that the work is done. But please, please don't ever do this on any other roads.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1419 S Monon DR

Case Date:

I've been meaning to report for some time. During major rain events stormwater rushes into my basement in through the sanitary sewer drain. The last time was June 2021 and storm water poured in for 8-10 hours solid. Luckily I have installed a sump pump that kept the overall water level manageable. I've lived at this address for 10+ years and this problem has occurred 3-5 times total. It only happens when the storm water system is overwhelmed. I believe the same happens for my neighbors. Is there anything I can do to prevent more back flow during major rain events?
