Give the city a call about their pipe, but it might be at it's capacity when it rains.

Given that there are one year floods, ten year floods and 100 year floods, anybody know how municipalities size their stormwater systems?

I'd hope it would be at least for ten year rainfalls/floods.

nothing says a 100yr flood can't follow another the next day, tho,,, we do the best we can - reasonable & prudent are the key

we wtrproofed a wall this spring to resolve a leak,,, 5wks later, we got a frog-strangler & her bsmt flooded all around the sole plate,,, go figure as our system worked fine thru several downpours

Had a girl friend who was a nurse who got pregnant after seven years of birth control with her first husband.
Did the numbers and found out that after seven years of rolling the dice with very reliable birth control the odds eventually got down to 50-50 that she'd get pregnant, depending on how many times/week they rolled the dice or rolled in the hay.
