Flooding on the Northwest side

I live in the 36th ward and after living here for 20 years it seems to me that every time it rains my basement floods this has been the last 4 years. I ask why what did the city do different? Please help me to understand why this neighborhood is under water these last 4 years ??????

  • Alderman cullerton and residents of the n/w side. Please dont discount sewer blockers they do work for some so ide say interview the residents on each block before making a decision. I moved onto the 5800 block of newport in 86 and i would constantly flood a few times knee...

    Alderman cullerton and residents of the n/w side. Please dont discount sewer blockers they do work for some so ide say interview the residents on each block before making a decision. I moved onto the 5800 block of newport in 86 and i would constantly flood a few times knee deep so i do know the mess and cost involved in the mid 90s i think it was, the city installed the blockers problem was solved so in the year 2001 i finished my basement even laid down wall to wall carpet. A week later it rained maybe 3 to 4 inches and my basement flooded. I was hot how could this be then it dawned on me sewer dept redid 2 curb drains 3 doors away from me on both sides of the street about 6 months earlier. There was a sewer dept crew clearing catch basins a few blocks away i asked them to check my sewers they came right over well the sewers werent the problem after the construction crews were done they never replaced the blockers. I was hot because of their laziness alot was ruined in my basement. Ald tom allen had new sewer blockers installed the next day. And since then we flooded very minorly in july 2009 when we recieved 9 inch rainfall we got about an inch. So the blockers do work but i guess it depends on the area. Right now we are in the midst of getting a new main sewer on mormora i hope its for the better and not revert back to flooding

  • Pasqual, thank you for the comment.

    Speaking as a mere local concerned citizen, not the topic expert, in my opinion, there are many obvious and not-so-obvious variables that determine the risk of flooding and there is no one magic solution for all.

    Some people like catch basin blockers but a lot of people I talked to do not, including some folks that work for Sewer and Water Dept. My city block had the blockers briefly installed this year, without prior notice or our block approval, right after catch basins were cleaned and most were repaired. This resulted in some quick street flooding, endangering our cars, immediately after a minor rain downpour. So, we had the blockers swiftly removed.

    Where I live, we have an aging sewer system, which has been poorly maintained along with other infrastructure elements like the alley skirts and our infamous sidewalks/dirt & gravel paths now by Irving Park Rd. cemeteries, ignored since the late 1960's. This recent comprehensive sewer system inspection, cleanup and repair (some few tickets are still open) gave us some much-needed peace of mind. It has brought the nearby sewer system to an acceptable level! At minimum, let's all work to keep it that way.

    however a simple kimetic water pressurue ram may ckear rust, if you have gal. pipes.
    oyher wise you may need to get a 35psi minimum pump to stisfied your most bacic needs.
    i can come aand use my compressor to learn more if you wish.
    but, stay away from galvanized to copper trsnsition, the plumber will gouge you and not assure better pressue.
    Sincerely,
