April showers bring May flowers, and unfortunately storm water and flooding. Wade through the basics of understanding your sewer with David St. Pierre of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District and Thomas LaPorte of the City of Chicago’s Department of Water Management.  Join us for an overview of the combined sewer systems in the Chicago area and how they operate during rainstorms. Why do basements flood during heavy rains? What causes sewer backups? Most importantly, learn what you can do to prevent sewer backups, and what the City and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) are doing to address these issues.
