Sewage Stewing on Grounds of Local Apartment Complex

When the mother of one of the residents here called to tell us about the problem, we wanted to check it out for ourselves.

We found a lot of the grounds of the Sungate Apartments complex soaked in sewage. Many residents tell us it has been like this for weeks.

The assistant manager at Sungate says the system is breaking because people are flushing things that should not be flushed. But he says they are moving the people affected by the sewage away from it.

The complex was hit with a violation this morning from the city's health department because the sitting sewage is a public nuisance.

A spokeswoman from the city tells us the sewer system busted and the city must repair the system and then disinfect the area before it will again be acceptable.
