The city’s response to ponding water along the gutter is limited. Significant ponding is often a result of excessive irrigation. Residents can reduce the amount of accumulated water in the curbed area by limiting the amount of irrigation applied to their lawn or landscaped areas.
Assuring that the curbed area is kept free of litter and debris is also essential. Since residential areas are swept once a month, it is important that cars are not parked along the curbed area during the scheduled sweep day. Allowing the street sweeper access to the curb and gutter to remove debris, assists in the mitigation of water.
If there are low hanging branches above the curbed area which prevent the street sweeper access to the curb, please contact the City of Campbell Public Works Maintenance Division at 408-866-2145, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and provide an address of the location along with your name and telephone number. You can also contact our office by email.
