What a mess.
Nearly 10 residents on West Charlotte Street in Millersville had some nasty cleanup on their hands after sewage spewed into their homes early Wednesday morning.
One homeowner caught the stomach-churning event on camera, saying the sewage was running out of a basement toilet for nearly two hours.
“I could hear a waterfall. When I took a couple steps down here I could see my carpeting was completely covered in a muddy, disgusting liquid,” Lindsay Gerner said.
They estimate the damage at $20,000 and say their insurance will not cover it.
Millersville Borough Manager Ed Arnold said the problem started when a water line broke, which in turn broke the sewer line.
There's no word yet on the cause, or if the pipe's condition played a role.
