There is a wet spot in the road in front of this house (just to the left of the driveway as you face the house). It has been there for two weeks no matter the time of day or the weather. It has been observed carefully and is not due to sprinklers. There is concern that there is a water main break under the road. Thanks for help.

Crew came over a week ago to confirm the issue and dug up tree roots creating a large hole. The hole is still leaking water and getting larger. The tree close to the street may now also be unstable. Lastly, internet cables were cut leaving us without service. We have called and left several voicemail messages to find out how and when this issue will be resolved. The next storm could have a major impact on tree stability and further flooding of our front yard!

Reporting blue-green algae bloom at entrance today, larger amounts. Also it is stuck in cattails... which City has not removed. What are we doing, folks, just our best job at maintaining a toxic swamp now?
The answer, Mayor's Action Center, that you keep referring back to from February 2020, "Update from Public Works: the city is aware of the reported issue and will continue working with all involved parties to help achieve a resolution to this issue."
This is not acceptable, Ask Public Works for a statement answering why hasn't the City done any of the following still, after another year of this...
1.) Adding beneficial bacteria as a treatment to the micro-bubble aeration to aid in the micro-bubble system's effectiveness.
2.) Adjusting and improving the efficiency of the micro-bubble aeration system installed in June 2020 -- by means of analyzing nutrient run-off input loading, sediment leeching, BGA build-up locations, lake morphology, and other factors alongside info previously mentioned/ emailed to City personnel.
3.) Keeping the properly designed micro-bubble aeration system as a permanent running solution to mitigate future lake events and to keep the lake healthier. Just as nearby Renaissance Neighborhood has had since 2016, which the City approved/helped fund.
4.) Removing the conflicting, higher cost, and unproven nano-bubble system and replacing it with more micro-bubble diffusor heads, if needed.
5.) Investigating / testing the lake's sediment & fill material for nutrient loading and leaching into the water body.
6.) Dredging the lake's sediment & fill material, if a properly designed micro-bubble aeration system is still not at its most effective due to possible extreme sediment leaching from the City approved fill project in 2001.
7.) Clearing out invasive cattails to improve lake access, reduce nutrient load, and to reduce the likelihood of toxic blue-green algae being trapped and its toxic dust residue from becoming airborne -- especially at the city's easement and access points, like at the public neighborhood entrance.
8.) In addition to the U.S. mailed letters, a creation of public web-page that allows City statements, data, and any other pertinent information to be posted about Harbor Isle Lake and its situational analysis. So, any interested party can better understand what has been going on or what is being planned.
.... Or are we going to continue to ignore these workable options and what multiple citizens have requested?
harbor isle lake journal website from neighbors has more info on this issue than anything the city has ever provided: https://sites.google.com/view/harborislelakejournal
