My basement is flooded! But I bought MY home. It is my responsibility. Floods are a act of God. STOP LOOKING FOR HANDOUTS AND DEAL WITH PROBLEMS YOURSELF. Its just like IL's Link card. Everyone is looking for a hand out and looking for a way not to take responsibility for them selves and property
How about when sewer water is gushing into your basement through the basement toilet or shower drain??? That is my fault??? You are a jag-off. You obviously are lucky enough not to have these issues but I hope your house gets struck by lightning so you could learn a lesson in empathy for your neighbors.

Little tip for you guys. Instead of pumping your sump pit outside. Tie it in to your main sewer. You will never pump the same water twice. You will lesson the chance of a foundation leak. You will get more years out of your sump pump. Is it legal by plumbing codes....No. Can it keep your basement dry. Yes.

Been in town since 1957. Never said a word about sueing anyone, Not coming up through the sewer.
Not sitting on my ass just asking for help as others do in other burbs and get it.

Curious as to when you moved into Midlothian. Flooding is not nearly as bad as it used to be. During a storm in 1981 similar to this, people were using row boats to go down the streets.
Very true! In the 80s the conductors on the train would announce the stop as MUDlothian or Middle of the Ocean.:)

It is not legal. The MWRD periodically smoke bomb the sewers to find out what homes call the fire department and then they will fine you and make you disconnect from the main sewer.

I moved here from a completely different area 15yrs ago. They said I didn't need flood insurance and no one seemed to have info on flooding. We were really young when we moved here and didn't know any better. We came from an area that never flooded so I didn't give it much thought after they said we didn't need flood insurance.

I'm flooding. I'm handling it. Im not asking for handouts. Im asking that the villge fix a problem thats affecting their residents. I can't fix the sewers, etc myself.

I don't give a rat's ass who the mayor of this town is. Could we please just fix whatever needs to be fixed so that the storm water doesn't come up from the drain into my basement during every storm?

This never used to happen, and suddenly the last few years I have to babysit the drain every time it storms in case the storm sewers can't keep up.

I live in Midlo and not in a flood prone area but as soon as the sewers get overloaded in the village, the water starts to rise through the drain in my basement laundry room. I had over 5 inches of rain in my basement this time. I do think we need a better infrastructre in place. I know they have tried to improve it but the flooding was worse this time then two years ago.

The reason your floor drains and mine flood every big storm is because of people like midlo guy whatever putting their sump water directly into the sewer. It is illegal for a reason. Storm water goes into storm system. Our floor drain goes to sanitary system along with toilet and everything else. Therefore when people pump their water in their sewer and not outside, the sanitary system gets overloaded. They backup and then I have 8 inches of sewer water in my basement and I can't even flush a toilet in my home.

Sanitary sewers and storm sewer are completely different systems. Rain water should have nothing to do with the sewer system. If people didn't illegaly discharge into their sewers then our floor drains would never flood.

sewers, I understand and agree with what you are saying. So then where is the code enforcement. Oh, the village probably doesn't have the money for that so then we need to rely on our fellow citizens to not let their sump pump into the sewer system but all most care about is their own home. I know my mother who lives in Midlo had to pay to have her sump going to the right drain because of code. So what is the solution for us? The plumber told me I need to put in an overhead sewer line...

You sound like a real class act. Your idiotic idea is flooding your neighbors basements. Way to go selfish jerk off.

My uncle who lives in the city had a double flap valve installed, wasn't cheap. But stopped the water from entering from the drains and toilet.

Sewers you have no idea at all what you are talking about.

At all.

Pretty much the whole city of Chicago and has combination sewers.

Storm and Sanitary go in the same pipe. And by that I mean sewers...like the ones on the street...with the big fkn holes in it go into the sanitary.

Look it up. Right now.

And while you are at it. Look up what a CSO is too.

Something else you do not know anything about.

You are a fool. An arrogant fool.

Everything you said is wrong.

Do they want everyone to pipe storm into sanitary. Fk no they don't. Is the few that do responsible for your problems. Fk no they aren't.

It would seem to me that you have a gravity sewer. If your basement toilet went into an ejector pump and got pumped out...you could have nothing come into your house because of the check valve installed downstream of your pump. The last poster is correct. An overhead sewer system would cure your problem. Or a check valve on your main sewer would help control your problem. If you need some tips on putting it in.Or just need to know what they are. Just ask here. I enjoy helping people and I know pretty much everything about everything when it comes to a screwdriver or wrench.

And another thing....You think that Midlo's old as sewers don't leak. It was said our village water mains were leaking 30,000 gallons a day. How bout the sewers? Saturated ground from raitn means more water going into the sewers. Streets that flood....Yeah we got some of those means more water spills into the sanitary sewers.

You thought of any of this or are you just a Big MoeRon.

Are you and know it all related midloguy30? Seems like you both like to attack other posters, name call and use every bit of vulgarity you can if no one agrees with you.Anger issues maybe? Not every one are Rhodes Scholars. Since you both act like it's your forum, what is it you both would like people to do on here?
