(KMOV) – Some homeowners in Valley Park have a lot to worry about when there are heavy storms in the area.
On some streets there are no storm sewers causing raw sewage to flood their basement and yards.
Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District says that the back-ups are a plumbing problem, not a sewer issue.
Kathryn Gan lives on Benton Street and says she and her neighbors have to deal with the problem all too often. She says water was up to her front porch today.
