Heavy Sewage Back Up In Basement. No match for SERVPRO of East Erie County.
No one wants sewage in their basement but it happens very often in Western New York from heavy rain storms. It is not rare that during heavy rains the sewer lines fill up with water much faster than they drain due to insufficient system capacity. This fact may lead to a sewage backup as the water flows back through residential floor drains and causes overflows. This type of water is a called Category 3: "Black Water"
Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
