  • 2030 East York St Philadelphia, PA - Kensington

    This issue was previously reported and the inspector came out but did not enter the residence.

    Raw sewage is being pumped from the basement out on the street. Chunks of toilet paper can be see floating along the curb and the smell is horrible. This has been going on for months and reported several times. The gutter is now covered in a sheet of sewage ice. The residents typically pump it out in the evenings but often leave the hose on the sidewalk.

    The inspector needs to gain entry and not just take the word of the resident.
