: The street crew was probably flushing the sewer and sent a column of water back into your building sewer. This toilet was the closest fixture to the street sewer on your line, and that's why it overflowed. That being said, it sounds like you have a problem with that toilet, because of the sewer odor. The venting to the toilet, no matter what your plumber said, is probably undersized, improperly distanced from the toilet, or non-existent...

: NtP

I never had the pleasure of the sewer smell before my "expolding toilet" experience. I only smelled it during, and the lingering afterwards. Now all seems to be fine. Is this normal for when they flush out the main sewer line? I'm just a little worried that there might be a problem and this may happen again.
