    Dear Street Maintenance Manager,

    I reported this issue on April 5th (see ticket 9651643). You closed the ticket with following comment:

    "The Department of Public Works has resolved this request. Thanks for helping to keep Burlington a great place to live and work."

    The drain is still clogged and causes the water to collect again. The issue was never resolved, and it appears the drain was never flushed.

    This creates a big puddle that makes it difficult to use the bike lane. Pedestrians coming down the drive are being sprayed by the cars. This is also a reoccurring issue. See the tickets

    You may want to reconsider your future responses if you want citizen of Burlington to utilize the SeeClickFix app. In particular, I was asking in the comment if the drain has been flushed. I never received a response. I am frustrated that the ticket 9651643 was closed without making an effort to resolve the issue. I understand that there limited resources and it may take a while until a issue is resolved, but pretending issues do not exist is helpful for anybody in the city.

    Paving and new sidewalks are opportunities to do more than resurface. We should be fixing drainage problems, not creating them. Put it in the specs that new pavement won't puddle.

    New paving at intersection of South Union and Maple did not address standing water issues. Storm drains are sited too high to alleviate pooling.

    When it rains heavily the water pools in the bump out in front of our house, maybe because the curb is broken on both ends. Then it soaks into the ground and pours into our basement. I called the sewer department and they wondered if the storm drained was clogged and I think if the curb wasn't broken the water would wouldn't pool so much in front of our house
  • 60-68 Starr Farm Rd Burlington, VT 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    Frequent standing water not draining in crossing area. Drain is set higher than street so water has nowhere to go. Corner of Starr farm and Grey Meadow.
  • Battery Park Parking Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    All summer, each time it rains, the water drains from the regular spaces in the parking area between Battery Park and the police station into the disability spaces where it pools until it evaporates. Very trying to get out of a vehicle when using the spaces.
  • 270 Pine St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Between Conant Metal and Light and Kilburn St the east sidewalk floods. Just wanted to get it on the planning radar.
  • 186-196 Bank St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Street is not properly pitched to storm drain so parking spaces in front of 189 Bank St flood each time it rains.

    Once again basement flooding even with back valve installed. The Street drains are on the corner of North and Mansfield but the water build up can’t flow up hill. This has been a problem for years. Jeff munger
  • 350-360 Pine Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    On the east side of Pine Street, between Hulbert Supply and the Post Office parking lot, there is a swale leading to a catch basin adjacent to the sidewalk that accumulates an excessive amount of thick ice that covers the sidewalk and part of a private parking lot, posing a risk to pedestrians and bicyclists on the shoulder of Pine Street. This issue needs a more permanent solution than constant salting. The catch basin and swale should contain the water flowing between properties to prevent this water from flowing across the sidewalk.
