Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

3517 S Glasgow CIR

Case Date:

Hello. Last year there was a major rainstorm in Bloomington that managed to adversely affect the storm drainage between my house and the next door neighbor. The storm activity managed to wash out a small corner of soil on the other side of the fence. Now any time it rains and thereafter, the ground is fairly wet (puddles) and the corner with missing soil fills up. This water manages to linger for days from outside the fence and through the yard. I'm requesting someone from Stormwater to visit my home on 10 June 2022; any time of day is fine. I ask for this date because I'm off work and we can survey together. This has been an ongoing issue for some time and I'm seeking suitable remedy. I have additional photos to share, however, seeing this in person would be beneficial. I couldn't include this on the form, however, my work email is: john.r.jerome.civ@army.mil. I'm most appreciative for any time you're able to spare to look at this issue. Thank you. V/r John

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?

Water Utility Problems

853 S Romans WAY

Case Date:

We recently had a plumbing contractor come out to our house to inspect our plumbing. They indicated that our water pressure was between 90 to 100 PSI and could be caused by a problem from our water utility. They indicated that the pressure should be less than 60 PSI and that such high pressure could damage our pipes and appliances that use water. Is this something that the City's water utility team could look into? Thank you!

Sewer Problems (Storm Sewers)

2414 E Rock Creek DR

Case Date:

The storm drain in front of my house clogs repeatedly. This is the storm drain on the south side of the street. Please replace the old storm drain grill with a more modern one like the one across the street. Today the water was backed up so high that it took me 5 minutes of work just to find the grill so that I could clear it.

Utilities Construction

3425 S Cedarwood CIR

Case Date:

This is more of a question after some recent work done by my property to fix a water main leak. As you can see from the image, there is some damage done to the lawn by heavy equipment used during the process. I was wondering if the city is going to help fix some of that or whether the responsibility lies on me. Also, is there any plan to re-pave part of the street that was drilled through to fix the underground water leak? Guessing yes once it is warmer outside? Thanks!
