Rain keeping plumbers hard at work

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

After 16 straight days of rain Chuck Brown with Rescue Rooter plumbing is working 16 hour days trying to keep up with the work load.

Chuck and his coworkers are running wild trying to keep up with this storm.

The constant rains also prompted the sewer district to post a swimming advisory at Edgewater Park due to the threat of raw sewage running into Lake Erie.

All the rain has Pam Campisi of Valley View checking her storm drain in her neighborhood which is known for flooding.

"We have had problems before where we lost things," said Pam.

 In 2006, Pam lost her home due to flooding but has since built a new home on higher ground. 

She hasn't had any flood related problems since but, she's keeping a close eye on her neighbors who live on lower ground.
