    The two storm drains on Blaney circle are full of leaves, etc. They are causing more water to pool up around it when it rains.

    With 1-3” of rain coming this weekend there is going to be significant flooding on lower Stetson with all the leaves that the wind deposits there. Can the gutters and drains be cleared before the weekend storm hits? Thanks.

    This puddle collects and takes days to drain. It is difficult to have a puddle blocking the crosswalk so close to the Hadley School.

    Since the beginning of July when we started to get a lot of rain, there has been a bit of water seepage in one corner of my basement where I have never had water ingress previously. I am in the early stages of trying to address this issue and figured the best place to start was to inquire with the town if there is a storm sewer on the road in front of my house (138 Redington) that may need maintenance. If there is indeed a storm sewer underneath the road, I'm wondering if it is flooded or blocked, causing water ingress in my basement. If it isn't a storm sewer, could the integrity of the sanitary sewer line be checked to confirm it isn't leaking from there? I appreciate any help or information that can be provided.

    There is a storm drain that runs through my backyard When it rains water leaks out of the manhole cover that is in my backyard and floods the backyard (and my neighbor's yard) This is not only a physical property risk but also a public health issue with bacteria and chemicals leaking into my yard where my 2 young children and dog play Can the drain please be cleaned to prevent this?

    Hi, We have called many times regarding a problem with our sump pump. We had someone come out in early December who said he was going to look at our house plans for water and sewer and get back to us. We have not heard back. Since work on our street that began sometime in October our pump goes on for weeks at a time with no rain. We have never had this problem before. And have had lived here for over 30 years. Could someone please look into this? We feel terrible putting the hose out to the street because of icing so we are just having it drain into our yard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
