La Salle residents complain about sewage backups

Posted by wlpo on April 23, 2013

It’s hard to enjoy a spring storm when all you can think of is sewage backing up into your basement.  It’s fear shared by some in La Salle who were left with messes last week despite efforts to curb backups.

Gerald Savage lives on Victoria Drive in La Salle.  He told the city council Tuesday night how it was the third time in six years he’s had sewage backup even after upgrading his sump pump and installing a shutoff valve.  He said they city should be ahead of the game.

Mayor Jeff Grove said complaints hadn’t fallen on deaf ears. And he acknowledged that while the city has increased sewage fees, they don’t have the money to correct the problem though he says they’re working on a plan.
