Residents fed up with sewage problems at Hattiesburg apartment complex

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The residents of Spanish Oaks Apartments have been experiencing sewage problems since late last week.

Many are unable to flush their toilets without the aid of a five-gallon bucket of water.

Puddles of sewage including toilet paper and feminine hygiene products have created a mess behind the apartment building. Residents are frustrated by the lack of assistance.

Management said that they were not notified about this problem until Wednesday morning, while tenants claim to have been calling since Monday.
