Resident called to report at dangerous pothole at this location. Please send a crew to this location to patch it.
I reported this two weeks ago and the issue was closed...clearly the issue hasn't been fixed. This isn't a pothole but a recessed manhole cover and it needs to be addresses ASAP! It's very dangerous and can cause serious damage. There is also a similar hole in the middle of the Orchard/George St intersection.

Front street sewer drains smell like raw sewage. These drain into the q river, near active oyster beds.
I remember hearing about a street flooding that caused sewage to backup into a front st resident's basement. wonder if there are pipes crossed that is causing sewage from houses to flow into the street drainage.
Yes, that was during storm Sandy last year, the sewage system overflowed, the water from the river was all the way to the other side on front street (on the lewis and front street intersection the water was about a feet deep) I think that the sewage system meets in that intersection with no place to go sometimes, On a heavy rainy day you can see how one at a time the sewers start to overflow so the water and everything else goes to the streets and then back down when the rains stops. The smell is from everyhting else that does run like water and stays on the street and sidewalk.
There are overflows from the sanitary sewers into the Quinnipiac at 255 Front Street and 279 Front Street. During periods of heavy rainfall the sanitary sewers cannot cope with the heavier flows, and a mixture of rainwater and sewage discharges into the river. This is the most likely cause of the sewage smells, as there are usually two or three complaints per year in the vicinity. There is a long term control plan in place to provide separate storm and sanitary sewer systems throughout the city. The catch basins have been checked, and they are clean.
Sidewalks are cracked, uneven and presents a trip hazard. Please inspect .
