Subject:  Sanitary Sewer Overflows AGAIN at Chimes Creek


After the first big rain of the season, and the sewer manhole at 6120 Oakdale is overflowing again, pouring raw sewage into Chimes Creek, just before it flows into the Mills College campus.  As you know, we have been reporting on this manhole repeatedly over the past year, but we have yet to hear of any remedy or corrective plan from the City of Oakland. 

In February of this year, the resident at this address witnessed raw sewage shooting up 6 feet in the air, the pressure was so great.  None of us deserve to have raw sewage and condoms strewn in our back yards.
