Section 19 of Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Act does not provide cause of action for damages allegedly caused by Reclamation District’s failure to anticipate need to use its systems to prevent flooding. Act does not provide Town with right to be free from backup sewage flooding, and thus no recognized cause of action underlying Town’s request for injunctive relief. (GARCIA and LAMPKIN, concurring.)
