Oh my. That looks bad.
That’s what happens when you teach kids to throw trash in sewer drain.
This is sewer drains that are clogged with trash, totally preventable.
Is this what the City said happened, or are these your thoughts because of the area that it is in?….just saying!!!
They supposedly cleaned the sewers when I reported not long ago… I think they should put grates on them.
Oh I see. That sucks. My bus stop is about 5-6 blocks south of this and there’s always trash around, even though there’s a bin provided. It’s frustrating.
Nope it’s because I work in that area and we see it first hand. They get super clogged with trash and leaves this time of year. When u see them clogged in most areas of the city that is the problem.
Thanx Betty. Makes sense!!
The lack of a leaf pickup in parts of the City is also a major culprit. It’s the little things that keep cities working properly and its citizens safe.
Tis intersection often floods and traffic routed around it The city needs to address that but yes, many other intersections here in Church Hill also flood due to the leaves choking the storm drains. Does anyone know why the city did not pick up leaves back in November/December like they usually do and now have been pushed back several times? I would think having to go under the streets and down storm drains to unclog them would cost more than sweeping them? We still have a 2 foot pile sand that was spread on our street and plowed onto the corner almost 3 weeks ago! Where will that go?
This reminds me of a guy I knew years ago. He didn’t like his office manager (Supervisor). He would go into the bathroom that that person always used, and he would flush a bunch of plastic bags down the toilet. Then he would wait to enjoy the moment when the toilet stopped up on the supervisor.
