Raw sewage making residents sick in Metro East neighborhood

(KMOV)-- A local resident reached out to News 4 for help to deal with a smelly situation in her neighborhood. She says the raw sewage under her mobile home is making her and her husband sick.

This in St. Clair County, just outside Caseyville along Cherokee Avenue.

No one is living in the mobile home now. The former occupants said they moved out Monday after only a month, because they couldn't take it any more.

The East Side Health District calls it a health hazard.

Inspectors found no hook up for septic waste. And they're not surprised that the former occupant said it was a problem that made her ill.

The health district said they have contacted the owner of the home and they said he's agreed to fix the problem by Friday by hooking the home up to a septic system, otherwise the matter could go to the states attorney.

News 4 plans to follow up later this week.
