Video: Brooksville Homeowner Gets Answers from the City about Sewage Problem
BROOKSVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – A Brooksville homeowner who’s had sewage coming into her home for years got a response from the City and her insurance company today.
It’s been a long time coming but today Brooksville resident Diane Ryland, is finally getting to the bottom of the sewage problem in her home.
“I appreciate them for coming but they’re a little bit too late because this problem has been going on for over four years,” says Homeowner Diane Davis Ryland.
After WCBI’s report last week, Diane Davis Ryland wrote a letter to the Mayor’s office and this is the result. Brooksville sent out a crew to investigate the sewage pipes.
Mayor David Boswell wanted to be on hand for the investigation into Diane Ryland’s sewage problem. He showed up at Ryland’s home Monday afternoon and stayed until he got results.
“We found that our line was clean and we made sure the crew members dug it up and everything seems to be open on our behave. Right now our sewage line is open and our pipeline is open. We got running water through there to make sure it was open and clean and clear. That’s only thing I could find on that behalf,” says Boswell.
Farm Bureau also agreed to re-open Ryland’s case. They sent a plumber out to conduct their investigation. Still, Ryland says she now has health problems and is disappointed that the problem wasn’t solved years ago.
“Well I’ve been getting a lot of lip service and a lot of paperwork came up missing in the office in Brooksville stating that I never came to them with this problem before and that’s not true. I just want the problem resolved. I’m not trying to point fingers at either parties. I just want the problem resolved,” says Ryland.
Ryland says she expects to get the results from Farm Bureau on Tuesday to determine where the sewage problem originates.
