Description

Water gushes from a drainpipe onto the sidewalk daily, creating a sheet of ice that I slipped and fell on last week. I yelled for help and saw someone in the window, but of course nobody came outside.

For months, I’ve been calling the city to try to get this pipe moved, and have been ignored. The city told me it is from a sump pump and there’s nothing they can do, but water pours out daily, even during droughts and when no other sump pump in the neighborhood has any water… and often there is what looks and smells like detergent bubbles in the water, which is an environmental hazard, and could harm pets and children. Maybe instead of calling the city constantly, my next call will be to an attorney.
