    This is a photo of where the sewer should be in the alley behind this address between Nashville and East McNichols. It has completely caved in. Many of my neighbors on Goulburn and Westphalia have had water in their basements over and over. This sewer cave in May be blocking the water flow. It is many feet deep. Please come out and investigate. This sewer is the responsibility of the water department, not the residents. I am making this complaint from 12554 Goulburn if you wish to speak to me.

    Our neighbor dumps dirty water from her laundromat into the alley, and floods it. We can no longer go through it with our cars from how much water there is. When its cold the water freezes and it's much more difficult and too dangerous to go through with our vehicle. .We've told her multiple times to stop and she continues to do it.

    I recently tried to have my basement drains snaked out because there is sewage build up where the water isn't emptying out into the city sewer lines outside of the house. My pipes and drains quickly fill with water leaving 2 pools of water in the basement. The kitchen sink, 1st floor bathroom tub and toilet, and washing machine sink leak water onto the floor because my pipes fill up too quickly. Ben Washington & Sons Detroit Plumbing snaked out the sewer line for 130 feet, but were unsuccessful in opening the blockage outside of the house. I was told that part of the sewer may be collasped in the neighborhood. How can this problem be fixed? I would love to hear from someone. I cant continue living in a house where the sewers are collapsed leaving the residents with backed up sewage.

    “Two years ago I paid Jack's Precision Drain Company $4,000 to repair the sink hole in my backyard. They have not come back to see the sink hole although I have called them several times. The sink hole has come back and I have made numerous calls to Detroit Water and Sewage who have finally come out and put a sandwich board over the hole. I am having water in my basement because of the sink hole and have had to have a plumber to clean the main drain.”
