(ABC 6 NEWS) - The city of Albert Lea has issued a sewer usage warning for residents.

"The City of Albert Lea’s Sanitary Sewer System is experiencing extremely high flows due to the persistent rain this week.  Residents are urged to limit water use however possible.  Please postpone activities which involve running water to the sewer.  

Residents are also urged to make sure sump pumps are pumping outdoors.  It is against City ordinance to run sump pump discharges to your floor drains or the sewer during this time of year.

The City Utilities Department has encountered loss of power at several lift stations around town.  Generators and mobile pumps have been deployed and City staff is doing everything possible to keep the system from backing up further.  

For more information contact the Engineering Department at 507-377-4325."
