I have been dealing with this for over a year. The water department came out after having a plumber do the inspection with them and they "fixed the problem on the street". Fast forward to rain season again this year and I'm getting water in the basement again. Had to pay again, inspection, agreed it's on their end, it's been two weeks and they haven't returned to do the work yet. In the meantime I have water in my basement, the worst amount I have gotten yet, for 4 days now and it won't drain out. Today finally it's gone down to half but it also started raining again afraid it's going to go right back up. This turned off my water boiler and we have been showing with cold water for 4 days and can't get the water boiler back on. Who is going to pay for all of this water damage to my basement?
