Despite heavy downfalls plaguing city sewer systems in the past month, East Lansing officials said there is nothing unusual about it. More than 3.6 inches of rain bombarded the city during the aforementioned week, and caused problems for both students and residents alike.East Lansing Director of Public Works Scott House said the sewer system in East Lansing does not seem to hold as much water as it needed to during a period of heavy rainfall or flash floods.
