Sewage backup creates stench on Grosse Ile

Posted: Updated:
GROSSE ILE, Mich. (WJBK) -

A nasty problem is frustrating people on Grosse Ile. Sewage is backing up in their yards creating a horrible smell. And they say it's not the first time.

Click on the video player to watch Ericka Erickson's report.

The strong stench of manure stings your nostrils immediately. Seriously stinky sewage is backed up in several yards, now swamps, along Rucker Road. Neighbors say it's due to faulty piping after weeks of heavy downpours.

Barely able to stand the smell or the thick cloud of mosquitos long enough to complete our interviews, we wondered how these folks live like this. What's being done to fix the foul odor? According to neighbors, nothing.

We've called the township for answers. So far, no response.
