Neighbor wakes up to sewage pipes in yard

Local

The city is upgrading its sewer system.

The current system is more than 40-years-old.

The work being done on Deer Park Rd. is phase two of five phases.

The estimated cost of this phase is around $150M.

The city says they are $50M under budget but that could change.

Neighbors are happy about the improvements but wish it wouldn’t have been a surprise.

“I wasn’t notified so I was like, is this where the city just dumps everything. Nobody got any notifications or anything” said Stephen English, who woke up to more than a dozen sewage pipes in his yard.

City workers say you can find out everything you need to know about this project online.

Construction workers tell us they will be working in this area for about six to eight months.
