Each home has a sewer overflow point, the purpose of this is to allow waste water to escape via the external of the home rather than the internal of the home.
Rising water within the vertical sewer shaft (as this photograph shows) indicates a blockage within the homes plumbing sewer pipes. The blockage could be due to a range of reasons including tree roots crushing the pipes below ground or even children dropping toys into the sewer overflow pipe.
