The massive storm that continues pouring heavy rain across the area has filled up Chicago's underground system that manages sewer backup and flooding, forcing the city to <>re-reverse the river.
The system, known as the "deep tunnel," reached its 2.3 billion gallons of water on Thursday while four inches of water rained down on Chicago. All of the tunnel's contents, a combination of storm water runoff and sewage, must now be rerouted to Lake Michigan.
