I moved in to this house 17 years and had called on this issue many of times and nothing seems to be done. Water will not drain past my house to manhole 2 houses down. in winter this is a big problem because water sits in front of my drive and builds up to about a foot thick and i have to go out and pick it away. Summertime is worse. Water sits in front and turns into a swamp of smelly disgusting water if i dont go out and wash and push it to the sewer at lest once a week. A month ago we had a water main break 3 houses up stream. at first the city try wash the sand and dirt to manhole about 4 or 5 times. of course, the dirt and sand stops at my drive and builds up and every time we pull in driveway dirt and sand goes up the drive. i have been out twice so far in the pst 2 weeks , along with neighbors helping me, to push sand to manhole using hoses and brooms. this morning i have to do it again because of the reain water pushed in front of drive again. I just dont know how much longer i can keep doing this. I just dont understand who determines what and where street repairs get done. Since i have been living here, street repairs, have been done on my street and streets around my house probably around a dozen times but never in front of my house where it is need. the cracks are so bad that grass and weeds grow in them and i have to apply weed killer a couple times a month. Could someone at least respond to this issue and let me know why other streets are getting repaired and never mine. I dont thjink i should have to clean my streets once a week and pay for the water i have to use. PLEASE HELP These pictures were taken 1 month after watermain break, after city tried cleaning 4 times and after i cleaned 2 times.
