Case No. 2018CV30282
Case summary: On March 26, 2018, Donette Norris and Dawn Winters (“Plaintiffs”) filed a complaint against the City of Loveland alleging three claims: (1) negligence in maintaining the water facility; (2) negligence for failing to repair a public water facility structure; and (3) negligence in failing to investigate possible leaks. Sometime around March 25, 2016, Plaintiffs experienced flooding in the basement of their home located at 2468 Oleander Court. Plaintiffs contacted their insurance company which paid to clean up some of the water. Sometime around April 1, 2016, Plaintiffs contacted the City to inquire whether there was a leak in the City’s water line. The City informed Plaintiffs there was no leak in the water line. Despite installing two additional sump pumps, water continued to flow into the Plaintiffs’ basement causing damage. Sometime around November 3, 2016, the City responded to a call about water flowing onto a neighbor’s property and conducted repairs in the neighboring meter pit. Soon after the repairs, the water quit flowing into Plaintiffs’ basement. The City filed an answer to the complaint on May 4, 2018 denying liability for the flooding.
