Kind of a dumb question, but I'm going to ask

I have a small flooding problem in my basement, by small I mean that the city I live in still hasn't separated the storm drains from the sewer drains, and whenever we get a heavy rain the water backs up in my basement from the drain access. So my dumb question is this, is it possible to put a cinder block wall about two courses high in the corner that has the drain access with enough clearance in case I ever have to get the drain snaked, paint the inside of it with some dry-lok, and place a sump pit inside the area and create an area to corral the water until the city gets their heads out of their behinds. Thanks for any advice
