    165 Building Brook Rd Hamden, CT - Hamden

    I'm writing to you in regards to an ongoing issue that has yet to be addressed by the town about Building Brook Road. I live at 165 Building Brook Road, on the dead end side and have been having street drainage issues since the re-paving of the street 4 years ago in September 2014.

    As you can see in the photos and videos attached, there are multiple issues that are leading to severe drainage problems. The pitch of the road, the lack of town regard for the drainage area on the opposite side of the road (cleaning of ditch, proper drainage pipes, clearing of season brush from town property), and the lack of acknowledgement of our suggestion to add a curb to the affected areas to block the immense water runoff from cascading down onto our property.

    I have previously submitted an email to the town back on February 9th, 2016 where I got a response stating:

    "Thank you for your email and I’m sorry to hear of your difficulties this morning. I will pass along your concerns/request to our Public Works Department and ask that they review the situation for possible remedies. With more snow in the forecast they may not be able to address it immediately but will get to it as quickly as they can. Thanks for your patience!"

    While the response was appreciated, no further action was taken on the town's part.

    On January 12, 2018, I submitted SeeClickFix ticket #4026079 to address the same drainage issue and suggested a small curb be placed along the road near the edge of our property to prevent the water from cascading down. It was, again, acknowledged, but no action was ever taken.

    Attached are images and video that have prompted me to write yet another email (and will be submitting another SeeClickFIx ticket). While I understand today's rainfall has been unprecedented, the amount of erosion and damage that has been caused to our property today (and since the repaving) is inexcusable. A solution needs to be determined, whether that is to re-pave the road to pitch it away from our property back into the drainage area, to re-dig the drainage ditch on a consistent basis to make it effective, or to install a curb in front of our property to prevent this from occurring again. With winter quickly approaching, this is sure to remain an issue. As proud town residents, we feel neglected and frustrated by the lack of concern or care on the town's part.

    My wife and I would like to come in next week to speak to someone about this ongoing issue. Please let us know who we need to contact to set up this meeting.

    Again, please see the Google Photo linked videos and photos below documenting today's damage, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Thank you, and I look forward to a response

    Our property suffers massive flooding with every heavy rainfall. Water accumulation is directly related to the overflow of the neighboring stream. The stream cannot handle heavy rainfall. Whenever the water level nearly reaches or surpasses the stream bank, we get flooding. The issue is ongoing for years- far before we moved into the neighborhood. I called the Town Engineer office in late December to file a report.

    100 Victoria Ct Hamden, Connecticut, 06514 - Hamden
    The property located at 100 Victoria Court has a drain in the middle of the driveway. The drain drains onto the sidewalk which freezes over in the cold weather covering the sidewalk in ice. The icy sidewalk is unsafe to pass on causing a pedestrian to have to walk in the street which is also unsafe.

    Would like for someone to inspect the sidewalk/drainage issue..seems every year it holds more and more water and when snow is removed or melting there is think sheet of ice even ice melt doesn't help. Hazard to pedestrian.
  • Fans Rock Rd & Leatherman Trl Town of Hamden, CT, 06518, USA - Hamden
    STILL a problem. Drain is in the WRONG place and has been forever. Requests were made to have it moved when both streets were paved. It wasn't. The ice floe has started and today, there was no sand or salt spread so anyone coming in does a slid and anyone going out has to "gun it" before the ice. PLEASE address this issue before an accident occurs.

    Over the course of the ten years here the wetlands area next to our house has become more full of water than ever. It used to mostly dry up but has not been dry in well over a year. Because of this mosquitos are a huge problem as the weather gets warmer. This is also causing issues to houses on Norman road where backyards are full of water: i have been told that there are drains in these areas that used to get cleaned periodically. I do not believe this has happened in some time. I believe others have complained on Norman road about this and would like to know if this is being addressed at all.

    There is no drainage installed in the Cul Del Sac in Nutmeg Hill Road, so when it rains there's a large amount of water that pools right along the curb.

    It's causing a lot of weeds to grow in that are and a lot of the growth has gone under the paved street. If anyone can take a look, that would be appreciated.

    Huge puddle has been forming for years now, it keeps getting bigger, drains very slowly, very disruptive and causing damage to road and driveway and lawn.
