Neighbors said the flooding may be caused by road projects or run off from a nearby creek. They tell 13News they've tried everything to fix it. "We've had neighbors who have taken time to go to the drainage and take away the debris, thinking that's the problem," Stephanie Quinlan said."But the drainage is full so even moving the debris isn't helping anything." While neighbors have gotten used to this, they want something done now before the water gets any higher.

"I just want the city to really look at it, because it is so unsafe because people not being able to go to work or school is awful," Quinlan said. 13News has reached out to Indy DPW for any information they have about the flooding causes but have not heard back yet.
