Request #RT-659
sewer overflow from sewer back up into 4130 Coolidge ave Oakland. The initial back up began on Saturday, 9/21/2013 during the heavy rain storm. Dave Amate, Carl Sibley and Fred Loeser all have information on the cause of the back up. I need the report stating the cause of the blockage to the main sewer line that backed up into the two manholes in our backyard, which forced raw sewage into our showers and bath tubs overflowing onto the floor and flowing into the crawl space under our bathroom.. JR Nick was also supposed to have information. Many Sewer employees, (Cesar Garcia was the lead for many visits) have come to the site, and throughout the neighborhood, for over 2 weeks working on unplugging the blocked area. This is my second request through this website for this information.
