Downtown street flooding

4 Comments

A neighbor shot this video, showing the view of Olive Avenue near Two City Plaza and the Prado after a rainstorm on September 7th.

This is the aftermath of a 24 hour rainfall event that measured, at best, 2.5 inches of rain. Our downtown stormwater system merits serious attention.

  1. Maybe it should be suggested to the City to modify the storm drains like the ones further north on Olive Ave. where there is also a storm grate on the ground.
    Also, with the oak trees dropping so many leaves and with litter rolling into the storm drains, the City workers need to be making sure they inspect them for blockages.
