From time to time, I get questions regarding street light repairs. While the City is currently planning to take over street light maintenance and ownership from National Grid, we do not own them right now. In the meantime, could you do me a favor? Could you please, stop outside your house tonight after dark and see if your streetlight is on. If it is NOT, please get the pole number and fill out this online Streetlight Repair Form, or using this link below.
FEMA approves $1.29 million in funding for flood mitigation measures at the city of Oneida wastewater treatment (WWTP).
The city of Oneida WWTP facility and staff are responsible for converting waste products into regulated materials that can be safely released into the environment. In 2013 the WWTP incurred approximately $1.3 million dollars in damages caused by the Oneida Creek floodwaters. The significant damages required months of repair work and impaired plant operations. Damages also impacted local industrial businesses that were required to cease production until temporary treatment measures were installed.
The City of Oneida Improves Operations with Technology. New applications make citizen request and work management more efficient
City of Oneida, NY — is pleased to introduce YourGOV, an innovative citizen request application that allows community members to conveniently report non-emergency issues and service requests using the web or a smartphone.
In just three steps, YourGOV users can submit common issues — such as potholes, vandalism, street light outages and more — complete with location, details and photos. Once submitted, YourGOV will automatically deliver requests to the city’s Municipal Services Department where they are reviewed and routed for proper handling.
Oneida Creek stream gauge data:
Just a reminder to residents that USGS maintains a stream gauge for Oneida Creek near Sconondoa Street. Residents interested in reviewing Oneida Creek levels can go to the following website: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=bgm&gage=nein6
The hydrograph provides up-to-date water elevations as well as predictive stream heights based on precipitation modeling. The website also provides a map showing FEMA NFIP 1% annual chance flood inundation limits (aka 100-year flood).
