Although the sewage collection system of the Evergreen Metropolitan District was still functional on Monday morning, it was running at peak levels, according to an EMD status report.
Residents whose homes are connected to the system have been asked to limit water use to avert backups in the overtaxed system, said Gerry Schulte, EMD general manager.
"Since the lines are flooded, people can expect backups," he said. "The main line is flooded."
