Basement of apt building flooding
I live in a coop apartment building. Whenever we have heavy rains, the basement floods with several inches of water. The super explained to me that rainwater from the roof is supposed to come down into the pipe in the basement that attaches to the municipal sewer pipe, but that the sewer pipe itself is blocking up and pouring additional water into the building.
Does anyone know what we would need to do to fix this? Someone suggested a sump pump, but I'm not sure where the water would be pumped out to since the sewage pipe itself is pouring water back into the building...
