For the second time in three weeks, rain and sewage flooded our basements.
The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) tells us the Connor Creek pumping station and combined sewer overflow couldn’t handle the historic rainfall. “History” keeps repeating itself WAY too often!
That’s why the time to act is NOW!
As promised, I participated in the Great Lakes Water Authority’s board meeting. I was the ONLY member of the public to come forward, but I delivered a message that I think speaks for all of us who lost so much in the flood.
I told the board exactly what I said publicly immediately following the flood: we cannot wait for them to make major improvements to the system. We need IMMEDIATE help for homeowners who want to install back flow preventers and sump pumps.
