BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An eastern North Dakota city that has suffered from flooding problems for much of the month has taken a
step toward normalcy - residents are allowed to flush their toilets
again.
Valley City Mayor Mary Lee Nielson said residents on Wednesday were being allowed to flush their toilets on a limited basis.
The sanitary sewer system is being restored after it failed
April 17 under pressure from the Sheyenne River. Hundreds of
portable toilets have been stationed throughout the city of about
7,000 for nearly two weeks.
The Sheyenne has been slowly dropping and is expected to fall to flood stage early next week.
More rain moved through North Dakota on Wednesday but
forecasters say it doesn't present a major flood threat.
