What's that smell? Recap of September 19, 2017, Facebook video.
 
Storm Debris Removal:
  • Crews have begun clearing roads on the far east side of the City.  They are working on the areas between Thunder and Kewannee.  If you are in these areas, you will notice that they are clearing the roadways first and they will be coming back to get the debris on the curb.
  • If your storm debris is left behind, email debris@itsmymaitland.com.
  • Some reasons for storm debris left behind by the hauler include piles near a power pole or fire hydrant or piles mixed in with other debris such as fences, furniture, or appliances.
Power:
  • There was a planned power outage in Dommerich Estates this afternoon.
  • Duke did provide last-minute notice, but we were able to get word out that it was a planned outage for a few hours to install a pole safely.
 
Parks:
  • Lake Sybelia Point and Lake Destiny Soccer Fields are open.  Soccer is scheduled to start Saturday.
  • We are working on the Keller Ball Fields for Maitland Little League.
 
Concern from Residents:
  • We have been getting several calls on water seeping from driveways and into roads.  Due to the elevated water table, these seeps are occurring throughout the City and they are not water line breaks.

Smell:
  • No reported sewer leaks in the City.
  • We have been getting a number of calls regarding unpleasant smells around the city.  This is occurring all around Central Florida.  Due to the amount of debris that was knocked out of the trees in low-lying swampy areas -- combined with the extra rain and fluctuations in lake levels -- the rotting vegetation in the wet areas creates hydrogen sulfide.  Hydrogen sulfide is heavier than air, so the gas settles in the low-lying areas as the winds calm in the overnight hours.  As the breezes pick up in the morning, the malodorous smell is dispersed.
  • The City’s resident information line remains open. The phone number is 407-875-2850.
