Lago Illinois

Dear SF Water Department,

I am writing to let you know about the major drainage issues that we face here in front of our building here on the corner of Illinois Street at Mariposa. The storm drain obviously does not work while it is raining and still does not drain when the rains have stopped; as you can see by the sun shining in the attached images. We have renamed this massive puddle “Lake Illinois” in hope that one day it will drain and we will not have to leap over the water to get across the street or to the curb. Until then we will continue to sail our boats and let our ducks swim in this small body of water and hope to not find ducklings with three heads from the pollution. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story.
