3153 70th Ave N Saint Petersburg, FL, 33702, USA - Commission District 6The mosquitoes are really bad again. East and west of the house are the worst.
Finally got the standing water from last weeks rain pumped out after 4 days of pumping.
59th St N & 77th Ave N Pinellas Park, FL, 33781, USA - Pinellas ParkThere appears to be a water leak at the southeast corner of 77th Ave and 59th St. The leak, possibly from the sprinkler system, is pushing wet sand up and over the sidewalk.
1513 Gray St S Gulfport, FL, 33707, USA - GulfportMosquitos really bad this year. I can’t find any standing water (except bird bath right after rain, and I always dump it), and I even ripped out every bromeliad. You guys came twice last month, so I’m not sure if neighbors have standing water or where the mosquitos are coming from (we have no alley, so we have neighbors directly against our property in the back too). I will have the larger gate on the left side of the house unlocked for you and the dogs inside

**The first issue has wrong location, website error. Sorry for that.**
Photo of the harbor isle neighborhood entrance, an hour or so ago. The City's algaecide spraying, done last week, has had a minimal effect on the harmful blue green algae dominating the lake still. The lake stayed green. Oh, I forgot to say it doesn't smell bad... yet. I guess that means everything's fine and going as planned.
Lake did not clear up like it did for a couple weeks in March after the first treatment. Hmmmm.
Is it because there's large amounts of nutrients from the bottom still giving the bacteria a food source? No one will answer this or consider it a possibly.
HARBOR ISLE LAKE ACTION REQUESTS:
"I understand that the following items would help solve this problem and improve the lake. I am requesting you to consider and engage in these over-due actions:
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.
Investigating / testing the lake's sediment & fill material for nutrient loading and leeching into the water body.
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 leeching from the City approved fill project in 2001.
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.
Adding beneficial bacteria as a treatment to the micro-bubble aeration to aid in the micro-bubble system's effectiveness.
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."
1775 27th Ave N Saint Petersburg, FL, 33713, USA - Commission District 7I have monthly mosquito treatments done at my property and there is no difference after the yard is fogged. The mosquitoes are so bad between our yard and our neighbors yard (she has a pond and tons of foliage but does not treat for mosquitoes) that you can see them swarming. It is unbearable outside. We have spoken to other neighbors and they have the same issues in our area. What can be done? We have blown all our leaves, make sure there is no standing water and are in the process of removing bromeliads that were growing on our trees.

he ditch Ditch needs to be cleaned out and grass cut. It has large tree limbs and trash in the ditch.
THE STREET NEEDS TO BE SCRAPED OFF TOO! The grass and dirt has overtaken the street by a couple of feet making it narrow and water does not drain properly.

1544 Valencia St Clearwater, FL, 33756, USA - Commission District 5I have an issue with water ponding at the end of my driveway every time it rains and I was wondering if there is something that can be done about it.
There are roots from two pine trees just downhill (east) from my driveway, that over the years, have severely buckled up the asphalt along the side of the road, trapping water at the end of my driveway more than 6” deep that stays there for days. It floods out my front yard and makes it impossible to park two cars on the concrete, so we are forced to park in the yard.
Being a neighborhood that has a high water table and is still using septic systems, before I had mine replaced, when it would rain very hard, my septic would fill up and overflow, spilling down my driveway trapping stinky brown septic water at the end of it.
Although my septic system is newer and does not have that issue anymore, I cannot say the same for my neighbors to the west of my house. We still currently have stinky brown septic water standing at the end of our driveway more than 6” deep after heavy rain events and water 6” deep in general after any type of rain.
I have spoken with my neighbor to the east of me and he is ok with the removal of the tree(s) that are on the County portion of the property if that is the solution, because cutting the roots would almost certainly kill the trees.
Please let me know what can be done to remedy this hazardous septic water ponding situation.
1900 Block Of Serpentine Drive South Pink Streets, Saint Petersburg, Florida - Greater Pinellas Point Civic AssociationThis is a years' long issue repeatedly reported by the residents of the street and nothing is resolved yet. The MULTIPLE potholes are breeding mosquitoes when it rains and fills them with water, as yesterday, make the road impassible without giving your auto, shoes, bike, trike a mud bath, and repeatedly damage your vehicles' shocks. .Besides that, it makes this upscale, high tax area look rundown and affects our property values. PLEASE, we deserve your attention and a solution. The macadam does not work and kills the grass it sweeps into, further damaging the aesthetics of the street. The city at one point pledged to maintain the street with gravel, but no longer does that or much else. The last city employee reviewing the situation called the street an "alley", which it most assuredly is not. It is the last block of the main thoroughfare in the blocks long pink streets section of the city and is unpaved.. Our support of Mayor Kriseman was in part predicated on the belief in his abililty to respond to citizen issues. This is one of long standing and we need his help.
