It sounds like Edgewood got hit particularly badly.
A reader asks:
“We own a partial basement in Shaw. No issues for the first three years (2014-2017) but since then we’ve had flooding 2-3 times a year. We get the drains snaked regularly, and clean the outside drains of debris. It seems to happen when the pipes are overwhelmed by large storms. No one has been able to provide a fix – any suggestions or plumber/contractor recommendations? Just cleaning up the floods is getting old…thanks!”

Several Edgewood neighbors had their worst nightmare happen today. Water just started coming out from toilets and drains. I hope we can get answers from @dcwater soon. Hopefully @CM_McDuffie @kenyanmcduffie can help us. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/dEh43iKSCc

Water backup in my basement today – Just had to sit and watch it happen because there was nothing I could do. Not shown in the video is water coming from my toilet and tub. Same thing happened 3 years ago. What can we do about this?@dcwater @PoPville @DCist @BrianneKNadeau pic.twitter.com/1zfYZoIc7r

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
