Sewage floods family home

Water from a blocked sewer flows into a home in Mimosa Crescent.

A family in Mimosa Crescent is cleaning up the district municipality’s mess. On Thursday, the stench and mess from a sewer pipe invaded the family’s home.

Pools of foul-smelling water filled up a room. The homeowner says that a blocked sewer in lower lying Industria Road is causing the water to flood the basement of her home in Mimosa Crescent.

“This happened before and I left it but now it is too much,” said the distressed homeowner.

Frequent calls to Uthukela District Municipality fell on deaf ears. The mess was cleaned up by the homeowner and the district municipality has not yet responded.

An enquiry from the Estcourt News sent on Thursday but no response has been received yet either.
