Residents of Valley City have begun flushing toilets again, but officials in Jamestown are being forced to pump diluted sewage into the James River.
People in both cities were watching the weather Wednesday as more rain moved through the state, though forecasters said it did not present a major flood threat.

The sanitary sewer system in Jamestown ran 7.5 million gallons of water Wednesday, said Reed Schwartzkopf, city engineer, meaning the system hit its limit.
“The big news for the day is we pegged the main lift (station),” he said.
Schwartzkopf and representatives from various agencies including government, medical, public works and charitable organizations met Tuesday to touch base on flood-related issues. The interagency group has met almost every day since late March.
I have only been a new homeowner for less than a year and have already had my fair share of frustrations with city departments. The past couple of weeks however have changed my opinion, at least for a particular crew.
During the last couple of weeks the driveway to my alley has been closed off due to a project that Lindberg Brothers has ongoing.
