  • 17 Doane Rd Medford MA 02155, United States - Medford
    We keep reporting this but nothing happens. The curbs are too low and the catch basin needs to be cleaned out as this happens every time in heavy rain. The photo shows the street and sidewalk, with the curtilage completely submerged.

    Storm drain is full of sand from the water main break on 9th Street on July 5th. It is located at the entrance of the property on 9th St., near Parking Space 221 and circled on the attached picture. This drain was recently assessed by US Pavements and deemed in good condition. Full of sand since the water main break and now rain water backs up and floods our parking lot. We are not sure if the drain pipe is also clogged.

  • 20 Sherwood Rd Medford MA 02155, United States - Medford


    We bought our house at 20 Sherwood Rd in 2016. Since then, every time there is a very heavy rain storm, we’ve seen a gigantic pond of water form in front of our house. This picture is from this past week when the tropical storm came through. The water got so deep, that it came all the way up our front lawn and was against our house’s foundation. The owner of 16 Sherwood Rd said she has been reporting this issue for years. Can the city look into ways to improve the drainage for this area? It’s extremely concerning to us, and I think the solution needs to go beyond just pumping the sewer drains more often (though that is helpful) If we accidentally leave a car parked in front of our house during a heavy rainstorm, it will likely be severely damaged. When we bought our house, we were not made aware of this issue, and we are not in a designated flood zone, so we feel the City should help us out with this issue.

    Thanks for your support!

    This intersection has asphalt that’s curved overtime from cars turning. It creates quite a lake for pedestrians to be splashed by oncoming traffic not paying attention. Coming into work with a second, clothes shower is super unprofessional and an inappropriate, and the city is creating and ridiculous situation. I've reported this multiple times over the years, please fix this.

    The sprinklers create a flooding issue. They are not aimed properly and are overused, creating pools of water on the sidewalk and mud pits in the grass. They are also aimed at the sidewalk and spray pedestrians. I go by regularly at 5:20 AM and this is when they turn on.
