Sewage backup forces evacuation for 29 families in Hartford

Story by Glenn Kittle

HARTFORD — It was late Wednesday evening when 29 families were told told pack it up as a sewage back up forced their relocation to a local hotel.

City officials say that the backup caused about a foot of sewage to flood the complex. Unfortunately for those residents there is also a flea infestation and a  minimum seven-day vacancy.

One elderly woman is being placed in a hospital due to her need for oxygen tank.

Officials are planning to   clear the pipes as well as have contractors digging up at the location.
