Sewage Leak Concerns

Some residents at a West Asheville apartment complex say raw sewage is leaking into their homes.

People living at the Deaverview Apartments say sewage backup is an ongoing problem at the complex but it became worse over the weekend. Residents say they woke to find a stream of sewage that had crept close to their front doors overnight.

"It smells like poop out here right now," said Teresa Duckett. "My neighbors have a moat of crap around their apartment."

Duckett says she has called the Asheville Housing Authority several times to complain about the sewage. "The sewage is always overflowing...overflowing constantly, almost every other week." Duckett says she doesn't think enough is being done to fix the problem.

WLOS contacted the Housing Authority about the sewage leak on Sunday. We will update this story when they get back to us.
