58th St N ditches junction with Miles Creek at 33rd Ave N. Miles Creek flows westbound going under 66th St N curving northward into Joe's Creek just west of 66th St at 40th Ave N. Joe's Creek empties into Cross Bayou. Miles Creek banks are gradually sliding into creek and there is much foliage and trees holding it together. Slow movement of water flow contributes to neighborhood flooding. The City should consider converting Miles Creek to a concrete viaduct to carry 4-6 times the water and also to serve as more water holding potential. See sample photo.
If St Pete doesn't do something about the nonstop extensive garbage along 275 especially around the downtown exits and the horrible recycling eyesore it's going to be reported to the right people at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, News Channels, Board of Health and anywhere else because it's literally disgusting seeing it all especially getting down the storm drains and piled up on the lids. This Mayor is ridiculous and hires the laziest people in the city. Landscapers, who over spray weed kill an kill all the existing trees along 275, the mowers who mow like a bad hair cut the city is a mess! ...except Beach Drive of course. I even have visitors from out of state that comment on all the garbage and sad looking roads here. It's nonsense! St Pete!!! Stop polluting our waters! Get with it already!
I reported this last year this year and since AER now Camden pier district apartments were constructed this post always gets close out saying it's a duplicate I want to know if it is a duplicate what is being done with it because this is going on for two years now.
This issue hits on a couple issues. Drainage, pot holes, road surface missing and mosquito control. The water always pools in this area and stays for days/weeks causing pot holes to form along with mosquito breeding.
Part of this drainage canal is in the Pinellas Park district and part is in the city of Largo district. In other words behind our house is Pnellas Park but everything north that abuts Ranchero Village and Pine Forest is the city of Largo. I contacted the city of Largo several times and was told there was a work order in process to get the drainage ditch cleaned out. I’ve only see them go over and mow but from the pictures you can see below, it is terribly over grown. Over the years from my recall this has only been dredged out once maybe twice and I’m not sure who did it. It has been neglected for a very long time causing loads of vegetation to grow in the drainage canal and consequently the water flow is basically nonexistent. The stagnant water was checked last year by Pinellas County and loads of mosquito larvae were found and they treated it and my yard and the neighbors unkept swimming pool. We understand that money has been allocated to clean up drainage canal’s and ditches in our area and we would very much like a response from someone as to when we can expect this to be done. We purchased this property 40 yrs ago because it was actually considered on the water. Instead of a beautiful place for the ducks to swim and otters to Roam, it has become a horrible eyesore and we need attention to it .
Please address the flooding on this street. Every time it rains, it floods and pot holes are created. You keep filling in the pot holes instead of addressing the real problem, which is the sewers. I have been calling and complaining for almost 3 years now. Was told they would be reconstructing the stormwater system on this street 18 months ago...
You have had multiple entries on see click fix for this issue. I'm just highlighting it once again. I'm highlighting the fact that the issue always gets closed but never gets resolved. This standing water is a community danger. Someone has already broken her leg because of the slippery algae that has formed in it.
Someone needs to please go to the Joes Creek Watershed pond and clear out all the dead reeves/plants where the pipes lead into the pond.There are hundreds of dead fish in and out of the pond because with the lack of rain all the tall plants died and fell into the water blocking the fish into a small pipe. It smells HORRIBLE and there are about fifty fish trapped in this pipe dieing right now. Please take care of this ASAP. Thank you.
