BRIDGEPORT - Residents who live in Bridgeport's South End say Wednesday's heavy rainfall was too much for the drainage system.

In some cases, raw sewage flowed onto the sidewalk.

The problem area is along Iranistan Avenue and it is not the first time something like this has happened. One resident says it happens around four times a year.

The mayor says that until they evaluate the issue, the city's beaches will be closed for swimming and fishing.
