City crews respond to sewage backup

Crews responded to the area of Crestline Street and Decatur Avenue today after sewage began backing up into people’s homes.

A sewage pipe either broke or became blocked, according to Marlene Feist, a spokeswoman with the City of Spokane, causing the backups.

Street department crews rerouted the sewage around the pipe’s problem area and will finish repairs Wednesday, Feist said. Homes in the immediate vicinity were affected, but she said the sewage leak isn’t affecting traffic flow in the area.

A claims adjustor is on the scene talking to homeowners, but anyone who was affected and did not talk to the adjustor can call the City of Spokane Street Department at 625-7900.
