Sewer back-up & basement drain flooding

We are experiencing a basement drain flooding and sewer back up for a couple of days now. A plumber came to rode the pipes and pumped the backed up dirty water, but they can't get their rodding snake to get to the street - something is blocking it.
We wonder if this might be caused by the recent street utility work - some pipes work and some Poeple's Gas work.

Is anyone else experiencing a similar problem? We are the condo building on Gunnison and Kenneth's corner.

  • good advice from John, I'd follow it

  • Chandra Lynn Dagley Pre-Medicine Chaser From AP

    Dead of winter last year, I want to say. I am on Avers. All good suggestion above me, we had someone come out with a camera, and it was a multifocal problem, because the neighbor (small bungalow) also had issues. Drain tiles were indeed a problem., and they are right about where city problem ends and ours began and some issues within the building where the landlords replaced some old pipe.

How’s Chicago supposed to desegregate when developments with affordable housing can be blocked by aldermen on a whim?

...the apartment building on Higgins Rd. Rather, a proposed 100-unit affordable housing development at 5150 N. Northwest Highway backed by 45th Ward Alderman John Arena became a flashpoint between local homeowners, progressive housing...

    How's Chicago supposed to desegregate when developments with affordable housing can be blocked by aldermen on a whim?
    Luxury apartment buildings in Chicago are built typically in neighborhoods with no shortage of well-to-do renters or in working-class parts of town where they serve as a vehicle for gentrification.

  • Affordable housing wasn't blocked by the alderman but by the developer. He opted out of providing the units and is paying the fine instead. I saw the document on Twitter. "Neighbors for Affordable Housing" activists went to City Hall yesterday to confront Napolitano but were escorted out. Napolitano's chief of staff published the ordinance:

    The title should be How's Chicago supposed to desegregate if developers opt out of providing units? This reporter is sloppy.

  • joanie 20+ year Resident of Jefferson Park

    When did representing what your constituents want become a "whim" anyway? These progressives seem to think that they are the only voice that should be heard. The reporters are obviously biased against conservatives and Napolitano. Nothing good would come of him meeting with the slacktivists, they'd only twist what he says.

  • @cubshawksbears,

    "People in city who follow too close and too fast honking their horns take note."

    I think he meant it as a general statement, letting those know that follow too close, drive to fast, or honk their horns to get people to move so they can speed as to "take note" of what could happen so that more people are careful.
