    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.
  • 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!

    Hello, during the heavy rainstorm on Saturday 10/30, the street in front of 16-20 Sherwood Rd flooded The floodwater deposited tons of wet leaves and mud all over the street Is there any way a crew or a street cleaner truck can clean up the street? Even if the neighbors all got together to clean it up, we don't have anywhere to put the debris Thank you!,

  • 14 Kilgore Ave Medford MA 02155, United States - Medford

    Tried calling DPW but couldn't get through

    Our frequent drainage issue is severe today with heavy rains At noon, the entire road between 14 and 15 is flooded onto the sidewalks now and we have a few hours to go with heavy rain I recommend putting warning for cars not todrive down/cut through the street

    I imagine even after the rain stops it will take a while to drain

    Still waiting It's been 2 years since reports were first made with the destruction caused by the company hired to pour sidewalks They destroyed the retaining wall and didn't repair it and they've caused a very dangerous situation as it was not level Water collects and freezes during winter months This needs to be fixed Huge puddles when it rains This was not an improvement paid for by tax payers

    Area floods after rain
  • 29 Marion Street Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    ever since the construction on this property, there seem to be a lot of drainage issues along the road and sidewalk, including puddles days after a rain and the constant running of a neighboring sump pump emptying onto the sidewalk. Once it gets cold enough to freeze, this is going to be a hazard to pedestrians. Did something get broken during construction?
  • 52 Wellesley St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    A large pool of stagnant, pungent water accumulates at this location, in the even # side of Wellesley St. The water has no means to drain. As a result, anaerobic bacterial overgrowth creates a public health risk to any person that walks by, particularly children or pets. A drain must be installed ASAP, or alternatively filled with concrete.
