Water draining out into roadway, Campfire @ Tamar
I have reported this issue several times as have my neighbors. The water began to drain in early December and has not stopped. We have been told the source is ground water and nothing can be done except salt the area which was done shortly before the last big snowfall. The problem is that the water crossing the entrance to Tamar washes the salt down the gutter and continues to flow or freeze according to the temperature. The ice is a danger for vehicles and pedestrians because it flows across the crosswalk.
The area where the water emerges is where a BGE contractor dug a deep trench to install a new electric cable for Campfire. I have lived at this intersection for over 40 years and there was never a ground water issue before even during rainy years. Calls to BGE have been useless.
The water is a safety issue and needs to somehow be diverted to a storm drain etc.
Please check all previous responses from Utilities.. Photos were posted on Tell HoCo.
The water flows across Campfire and down the gutter in front of my home at 6120 Tamar. The salt is only on Campfire and the water in the gutter freezes across the end of my driveway. Today it is at least three feet wide which makes it impossible for anyone to safely walk across the end of the drive to get to a car parked on the street or to go to the mailbox across Tamar. Please salt the gutter as well as the flow across Campfire
This is dangerous. Thank
