Water in the Street

This service type is used to report water that remains on the street following a rain storm. Certain questions need to be answered to dispatch a sewer crew: the address of the location, the location of the water (middle of street, curb line, alley etc.) Additional information that is helpful includes whether water is bubbling up in the street, and from where. Noting whether any construction has been done in the street lately, and by whom, can also help.

The Department of Water Management responds to water on the street complaints.
