After 10 mins of rain, water reached center double line and didn't flow at all on Southside of 30th ave N between 1116 30th ave N & 1100 30th ave N Southside of road. Water sat in front of 1108 30th ave N reaching double center lines and expanded from alley and 11th street N south side of road. Cars started driving on north side of road in wrong lane as they traveled east towards mlk. The asphalt on this side near curb needs to be raised to help the water flow towards sewers. It seems 30th ave N between 16th street N and MLK might need to be looked at during a rain by higher management cause cars where at a stand still on 30th ave N approaching MLK also. I have pics and videos to show this occurrence it was bad flooding and not nice at all for being a newly paved road.
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 .
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.
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.
Squatters at the property are building improvised shelters in the back yard. They are also using car batteries and improvised wiring. They are also dumping waste water on the front lawn and in the street. This is a severe public health hazard and fire hazard.
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...
The corner of 35th Ave So and Country Club Way So becomes a lake even during the smallest shower. We reported this over a year ago, workers were sent out and all they did was dig a hole and put up some barricades. Those are long gone now and the water still pools in front of my mother's house when it rains. A storm drain needs to be installed to the lake that is right next to the street.
Resident has taken up the grass on easement and dumped the debris into the gutter.
They intend to put down Astro turf. This has clogged the road with rain and debris is going into the storm water
