  • West Haven, CT - West Haven
  • 123 Prospect Ave West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
    Instead of using the public sewer system, this particular house drains their shower water through a pipe onto the sidewalk and street daily between 6:30-8:00am. Sudsy, soapy water is not safe for children to play in or animals to accidentally drink. This is a health hazard, but the city building department does nothing- when we've reported this, we were told the women who live there claim it is a pipe from a sump pump. Well, none of the other sump pumps on the hill have run for over a week (it hasn't rained for 9 days!) and when they do run, it is not with scented bubbling water at the same time we happen to shower, it is after (or during a storm)- the women in this house have no respect for the environment or people around them.
  • Fountain Terrace New Haven CT - West Haven
    Fountain Terrace has become a speedway by cars using it as a shortcut
    between Hopkins, Curtis Drive and Fountain Street. They come over the steep hill at Curtis Drive or onto Fountain Terrace from Fountain St. doing 35-40. As there are no sidewalks on Fountain Terrace, this hazard invites an accident waiting to happen. There is also a hazard from a series of potholes at the crest of the hill going down into Curtis Drive.
  • 5 N Forest Cir West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
    The presume it was the water company last summer did some pipe repair and dug up all the streets from Alden all the way around the circles. The streets were fine and now the streets are just crumbling away.
  • 118 Anderson Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    This is a regular occurrence: the plow clears the intersection -- in this case, Anderson and Noble, and dumps the entire load of snow right onto the curbcut at the crosswalk. Message to pedestrians: you're out of luck, suckers; get a car, get a life, because if you're a pedestrian, you're a piece of you-know-what.
  • 270 Center Street West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    The dumpsters in the parking lot is always overflowing and all over the ground. Rats can be seen near the trash regularly. There is also quite a bit glass in the parking lot that seems to come from the bar that shares the same parking lot. The whole area is rarely cleaned.
  • Ocean Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    Every year around the 4th of July, residents and visitors set off fireworks every night, sometimes for weeks. Most of the fireworks are illegal in CT, yet the Police do nothing to stop them. Dogs are traumatized by the explosions, people can't sleep (as the noise usually goes on until very late at night), and shoreline wildlife is severely disturbed. While I can understand the desire to celebrate, could the celebrations be limited to JULY 4TH ONLY? Also, the WH Police Dept. should be ticketing those with illegal fireworks.

  • Campbell Ave West Haven, CT - West Haven

    On Campbell ave, more specifically from the corners of Park St. to Atwater St., cars are always parking on the corners and it makes crossing Campbell Ave a real challenge. You need to move up so far into crossing traffic just to see and people drive too fast on Campbell to be able to judge anything.

    A lot of these corners have parking spots painted on the street but they are just too close to the corners. Some people ignore these spots and park right on the corner, and that makes it impossible to see.

    I cant tell you how many times Ive had to depend on the car opposing me to know when it is safe to cross Campbell Ave. Its pretty dangerous if you ask me.

  • 1-79 Barbara Ln West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    Road surface is uneven. Potholes partially filled recently. Other areas of the roads have large cracks and excessive sand and debris from plowing over the winter.
