Madison Sewer District: Forethought?

In a brief report the other night covering beach closings, Channel 12 mentioned that a beach on Monona Lake is closed due to a raw sewage spill.

Seems that an electrical power line feeding the pumps at the sewage processing plant was disabled, leaving the plant without power. As a consequence, there was an overflow of sewage directly into the lake.

Doesn't anyone in the Madison Sewer District know about "backup power" generators?
