STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI)- Workers are cleaning up quite a mess at the Starkville Police Department.

Chief Frank Nichols says sometime over the weekend a pipe burst, sending raw sewage rushing into a storage space in the building.

Dispatchers began complaining of a foul smell Sunday.

Nichols says it became a health concern for some of them.  “One of my dispatchers got sick and had to go home and when I came in the following day the smell was unbearable.”

Nichols says a pipe was apparently stopped up and it also caused sewage to back up to an entrance to the building.

Crews are working to fix the pipe.
