Residents in Burbank turned up in full force Wednesday night to voice their flooding concerns to the city council.

The southwest suburb has had major flooding issues with the summer storms and rains in August.

At Wednesday night's meeting they urged leaders to increase the size of the local reservoir which collects storm water and pumps it into the Cal-Sag Channel.

Residents say they're confident increasing the size of the reservoir will lead to less flooding when the area experiences stormy weather.
