Drainage or Runoff

918 W 13th CT

Case Date:
6/12/2020

Hi. I just want to say that I really appreciate the Adopt-a-Drain program. I was told about it by a city worker named Kriste. Anyway, I've complained for years about the storm drains on Blair Avenue. They get clogged (mostly by grass clippings from people mowing) and then the rain doesn't drain well. For years I said, why doesn't the city clean these? I was annoyed about it because the water would carry seeds and dirt, which would collect in my gutter, and then the next thing I know I have to mow my gutter! lol! So for the past four years I've been cleaning out my gutter, muttering to myself about the drain, and then every now and then cleaning it out, too. When I heard about Adopt-a-Drain, I realized that I could handle that task for two drains on Blair Avenue that impact my yard. Kriste also taught me that the city has over 12,000 drains, far too many to handle without some help. So, now I know that I can help, and I'm glad to do it. Great program!

MY NEIGHBOR JUST INFORMED ME OF WATER IN THE ALLEY THAT LOOKS LIKE ITS COMING FROM UNDER MY YARD AND RUNNING KIND OF FAST. HE SAID IT WAS THE THIRD TIME SEEING IT. I'M NOT SURE IF IT IS A BURST PIPE IN MY YARD OR ONE UNDER THE HOUSE. IT DOES MAKE SENSE BECAUSE MY WATER BILL WENT UP $20 IN MY MAY WATER BILL

MY NEIGHBOR JUST INFORMED ME OF WATER IN THE ALLEY THAT LOOKS LIKE ITS COMING FROM UNDER MY YARD AND RUNNING KIND OF FAST. HE SAID IT WAS THE THIRD TIME SEEING IT. I'M NOT SURE IF IT IS A BURST PIPE IN MY YARD OR ONE UNDER THE HOUSE. IT DOES MAKE SENSE This problem is still occurring. It only happens when I do laundry. Is there possibly a map of pipes so we could find which one is leaking?

Drainage or Runoff

9030 E Raymond St, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46239

Case Date:
3/29/2020

The home we bought 2 years ago has flood damage and serious drainage issue that I can't not get under control. There is stormwater runoff that has been coming from (5) different neighboring properties and especially the one huge lot at 2130 Shan Crest Hill 46239. When there is a rainstorm not only does or crawl space completely fill up but our yard on the South, East, and west sides become quickly flooded like a lake. there is a 12" culvert drain pipe that runs east to west on the South side that run right next to the road Raymond Street that should be able to accept my neighbors & our ground water but the 12" easement drain pipe is roughly 13" higher win elevation than the area in the rear of my home where all of their ground water collects so it just fills up and resides under our homes foundation. My wife and I have tried everything bought and burnt out several 1, 2. and 3 HP water pumps with no luck. there is just way, WAY to much water. We are becoming very worried about the possibility's of permanent foundation damage, mold, and our home becoming condemned. Every contractor at least (9) or (10) decline getting involved engineers as well. we are at the end of our rope sorta speak.... I Just had a survey done along with a TOPO survey as well , I can send both to you if it would help. Please any help at all would be greatly appreciated... Thank you Scott, Sharon, & Karmavon Herzog 9036 East Raymond Street Indianapolis IN 46239 317-494-0574
