ALBANY, GA (WALB) - As afternoon showers continue to dump heavy rain in a short period of time, city public works crews are trying to make sure our sewers and drainage pipes can handle it.

One work crew was in the 800 block of Baldwin Drive earlier Wednesday, a frequent trouble spot when there's flash flooding. Yesterday, yards in the block were underwater as storm drains were clogged with dirt and debris and the water backed into the street.

Now, workers are trying to make sure there isn't a repeat and are hitting trouble spots. John Reid said, "We're working all over the city. We're trying to take care of all the trouble areas now and this is one of our worst areas here and we're trying to make sure we get all this taken care of today."

If you are having a problem where you live with storm drains backing up, call public works and alert them to the problem. They'll try to get someone out to look at it right away.
