Sewer Overflows cause of flooding in some areas

ECUA Sewer Overflows in Pensacola~
Pensacola area recovering from flash flooding and sewer overflows.

It's been 10 days since our area was devastated by 22-27 inches of rain which caused flash flooding in Escambia & Santa Rosa Counties.

I found this awesome article from Progress + Promise and map indicating the sewers that overflowed and caused several roads to flood during our April 29-30th storms here in Pensacola. Check it out:
http://www.progresspromise.com/blog/where-ecua-sewers-overflowed  This article includes an easy to view map format of all the places sewer issues were compromised.

This article explains why several homes and apartments flooded, even though they lie outside of the flood zones.

Below is the press release from ECUA showing a complete list of the sewer overflows.

NOTIFICATION OF SANITARY SEWER OVERFLOWS DUE TO FLOOD EVENT
Tuesday, May 6, 2014  04:17 pm CDT

Several sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) occurred recently as a result of the surcharge of stormwater (from storm drains, retention ponds, curb inlets and overloaded surface drainage) that entered the ECUA sewer collection system.   
 
Per State protocol, all overflow areas were cleaned and disinfected with a biocide agent that abated any contamination concerns.  The Escambia County Health Department, the State Warning Point, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection were notified immediately in each case.   Where applicable, the Escambia County Health Department issued a Health Alert for any affected waterway.
