  • 286 West Shepard Avenue And Paradise Avenue Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden
    At the corner of West Shepard and at the end of Parafise Avenue there is a thick layer or ice. Someone is going to have an accident very soon. I think there is a spring somewhere nearby and we are always having running water 💦 so when the temperature falls it becomes frozen. Our street never gets paved and no one seems to care about the danger people lives are in. Please don’t wait for someone to die. The water need to be channeled somewhere because it goes across the street. It is at a blind spot so that makes it more dangerous for people coming around the corner. Please come out before the temp goes up to assess the area.
  • 25 Arcadia Ave Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden

    My house at 25 Arcadia experiences severe rear yard flooding basement flooding and with heavy rains basement flooding, This is a town issue, there is no curbing on a part of Battis road which abuts my rear yard, it is not my property but another homeowners on Battis road, there is no curbing on the North side of the road where the open grass area is and the run off flows freely into this grassed area and floods my reay yard and sometimes my basement and my neighbor's as well. This needs to be addressed, I do not know what the person who ownes the property says, but thats not my xoncern nor problem, this is a city roads and drainage issue which needs to be addressed, very soon, as I can not have this continue. I would hope and expect that someone will look into this and be in touch with me on this very important issue......
    Pictures attached...........

    Also, by 34 Arcadia, there is a very old cast irin catch basin grate set in asphalt. The one across from it was replaced yeats ago, but does not remove the water because of the crown in the road. This old catch basin has been reported for clogging and floodiing constantly today as well, the roadway floods and nothing is ever done, the catch basin is very very old and Needs to be vacumed cleaned and replaced.. I have many pictures of my yard, my nasement, my neighbors yard and the street basin... but your system will only allow 1 upload

    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.

    engineering department stated a few years ago they were going to replace the storm drains across from my house. during rain storms drains clog and water flows down my lawn and a large pool of water stages in front of my front porch. this causes leaks in my basement and all the rugs get wet. also this has damaged my retaining wall. I need someone to come and meet me in regards to this problem. Videos and pictures regarding this issue will be provided.

    Rain water from Gaylord Mountain Road drains alongside our home due to road/curb damage. This is washing away dirt/grass resulting in property damage.

    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

    94 Nutmeg Hill Rd Hamden, CT, 06514, USA - Hamden_Feature 001

    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.
