You may have noticed some of our flooded corners draining a bit better during this week’s rain. That’s because Dan Murphy, my ward superintendent, put on his hip waders and cleared as much debris as he could from the sewer grates.
Now, the City’s Department of Water Management and its vacuum trucks are in the 49th Ward today to finish the job. At my office’s request, Water Commissioner Tom Powers has sent in crews of Water Department employees to clear up chronic clogged sewer problems at over 16 locations in Rogers Park.
If you know of a clogged sewer, please report it to my office by replying to this email or calling 773-338-5796.
