Note to municipalities: Residents hold you accountable for floods and sewer backups
April 27, 2007

Canadian study finds that people blame the local government when sewer backups and floods happen. That's a sign that communities need to take reasonable steps to ensure that they aren't at fault, especially if they're in areas susceptible to flooding. That may include keeping portable lift stations on hand in case of power outages in major storms, which is when flooding is most likely to create the greatest need for pumping capacity.
