Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

2737 E Brigs BND

Case Date:
7/16/2021

The heavy rainfall today has resulted again in flash flooding our backyard. The beehive drain in the City's drainage easement within the Brigs Bend cul de sac in Hyde Park is deteriorating around and above the drain structure, with large sink holes with active water flowing in the ground. There is another sink hole developing to the east of the drain with active water flowing below ground. We believe the storm pipe(s) may be compromised in some way that causes flash flooding to occur, over-filling the north and east swales that subsequently fills our back and side yard with flood water within seconds. We have videos of the drain after the storm today showing water draining through these holes in the ground. We believe this is a dangerous situation, particularly with the transformer at the top of the drain open to the large sink hole. This is at 2737 E Brigs Bend and 2712 Olcott.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

Case Date:
7/11/2021

During the evening rainstorm of 7/10/2021, the storm water swale to the north of our home overfilled its banks and flooded our back and side yards. Luckily, the rain stopped before the water breached our basement window well, which happened July 18-19, flooding our basement. The storm pipes below these swales are obviously under-sized. We request a re-assessment of these swales by a storm water engineer to mitigate future flooding and the property damage we have already experienced. We believe repeated high storm water flow during the past several years has caused erosion of the swales and they are no longer able to hold current storm water run-off.

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

1105 S Washington ST

Case Date:
7/8/2021

The low area of this block (1100 South between Washington and Lincoln) is in the old alley and is first flooded by the overflowing ditch along Davis Street and then water continues to flow up from damage pipe clean outs even when water in the ditch has lowered. The water peaked at about 1 foot higher than shown in the attached picture. There is a storm sewer manhole behind this garage, but no inlets are nearby. Is sanitary sewer infiltration to blame for this? Would fixing the clean outs lead to backups inside homes?

Drainage or Runoff

1512 S High ST

Case Date:
7/4/2021

Hello. Our public culvert just south of Hillside on High has a high level of debris since the storm. Neighbors have been cleaning but we need city help. We are aware of previous flooding that occurred reported by previous owners due to debris build up. This previous water damage is recorded with the city. Any help is appreciated and needed. We are fearful of another heavy rain. Thank you so much.

Drainage or Runoff

1804 E Ruby LN

Case Date:
6/29/2021

In 2019 we received a residential storm water grant to have a ditch at the back of our yard redone. It was done with large riprock. During the last big rainstorm large rocks were carried into the storm drain which could cause a clogging problem at the next big rainstorm. They are located at the drain in our neighbors yard at 1100 S. Nancy Street, as well as in the drain in the street. We need the rocks to replace them and repair the ditch as it drains 17 properties. Do not take the rocks away after removing them from the storm drains.
