The rain has caused a stinky problem in South Shreveport.
The recent rain is flooding a street in the Southern Hills section of town with more than just water.
Raw sewage was coming right out of a man hole cover and back into the city drain. Shreveport's Interim Director for Water and Sewerage Barbara Featherston says this isn't an isolated incident.
She says this is a common problem that the city faces every time it rains.
"We have sewer pipes with holes and cracks with pieces that are missing with main holes that have holes in them and the rain water gets into those holes and overwhelms the system", Featherston said.
Featherston estimates it'll cost $2 to $3 hundred million dollars to repair the 1,000 miles of sewer mains and over 14,000 man holes in the city.
