See, Click, Fix: City clears storm drains as promised but...

The clogged storm drains that could become a problem are on Cinderella Road in Charlotte.

One was filled to the top with rocks and other debris. The other, when you looked closely, was getting close to being pack with leaves.

After bringing this to the attention of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services officials agreed this was a problem and scheduled a fix.

We got an email from the department confirming: "The crew cleaned a total of 5 boxes and rodded the pipe. Everything should be flowing fine..."

That's great news. The drains have been cleaned but not the two that were especially clogged.

When we visited the drains the morning we received a heavy rainfall, a puddle formed over one of the drains because the water couldn't pass through.

The other storm drain was still packed with rocks.

Storm Water Services says communications may have been crossed as to the drains' specific location.

Officials say they will be sending another crew out there to clean those drains specifically.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
