Potholes, Other Street Repair

1008 S Lincoln ST

Case Date:
9/26/2020

Utility crews cut into the road to install new water connection/meter. The patch of gravel they left behind was hastily and poorly covered with a thin layer of asphalt and is still filled with loose gravel. Cars are flinging gravel all over the street and the whole is getting larger by the day. Please address this soon, as it was a direct result of the city's actions and the poor work of city employees.

Water Utility Problems

414 S Owens DR

Case Date:
9/20/2020

The city water connection that is in my back yard is leaking water directly into ground, and charging me for it. If you pull off the top and remove the insulation in the iron-topped hole where water shutoff is, you will hear the constant leakage, and you can see it spraying out into the damp earth. No idea how long its been happening, but clearly for a while. It has the insulation wet, and that will freeze and cause further problems soon.

Sidewalk Requests

3165 S Coppertree DR

Case Date:
9/14/2020

The south end of the sidewalk in phase 2 near the gazebo is sinking. There is at least 20 inches of no dirt below the sidewalk, hence it is sinking. The sidewalk is next to the sewer drain where the earth has disappeared and with all of the water problems we have had recently with water mains, the city needs to come inspect. One city worked thought this drain runs right next to departed neighbor Cassie Howard's condo which then should worry us as the ground beneath her condo also disappeared causing her slab to sink and foundation to go bad. These two problems could be connected and the area below the sidewalk cannot simply be filled in with dirt. It has to be inspected including a city inspection. We need to see why it is all sinking.

Case Date:

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington- Lincoln St Unit has smelled like sewer gas for the last month. There is standing water in the sewers outside of the building. It is very difficult to run a full day of program when my staff and our members have to deal with the strong smell of sewage.

Water Utility Problems

Bloomington City Hall

Case Date:
8/30/2020

A week ago a worker in a white p/u tk was at the fire hydrant at the end of my driveway. A couple of days later I noticed it was leaking quite a bit of water from the hydrant shut off. I contacted Van Buren Fire & reported it who said they would send someone to check it out. When I checked today I see that the hydrant is still leaking water. Van Buren said they notified City Utilities about the problem but no one has repaired it yet.

The drainage easement at the south end of Greenwood Dr., where it dead ends into the sidewalk, is blocked with a landslide of debris. The water level rose to 3 feet on either side of the sidewalk and covered three properties adjacent to the clogged drain with water and debris. Thank you for your help. Jim and Debbie Quinn

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

2739 E Brigs BND

Case Date:
8/4/2020

The beehive drain at the end of the swail between our properties on Brigs Bend has failed again to drain the large amount of rainwater that fell 8/3/2020. This is the 3rd time we have experienced flooding that not only filled our yard and the side swail (which held water but did not drain to the street as it was designed), but submerged our neighbor's basement entrance. Had the rain not stopped, our basement was also in danger of flooding by a few feet. There is surely something that can be done to fix this problem as it has been occuring over a number of years (found complaints written to the Mayor by previous owners of our home). We ask you send engineers to assess the swails and beehive drain to determine remedies to this continuing problem.
