Heavy rains caused three sanitary sewers in Baltimore to overflow last week, a city agency said Wednesday.

Two of the overflows occurred in the East Baltimore community of Middle East, according to a statement from the Department of Public Works.

A 75,500 gallon overflow took place in the 1700 block of E. Chase St. and a 66,250 gallon overflow happened near the intersection of E. Eager and Durham streets, the statement said.

The third overflow, of 110,000 gallons, arose in the 1900 block of Falls Road in the Jones Falls Area just west of the Charles North neighborhood.

The overflows occurred on Nov. 22 and 23, the department said.
