SOUTHBRIDGE — "Water, water everywhere..." isn't just a line from a Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem.

It's lately been daily life for several Charlton Street and Brookside Drive residents.

"Since the storm, it's become a real problem," said Michael Addington. "It's flooding our yards and everything behind us. … When we got that big downpour the other day, I had two inches of water in my back yard."
