Clogged pumps cause house flooding



The Cincinnati Enquirer

DEERFIELD TWP. - Sewage backed up into seven homes in the Water's Edge subdivision Thursday after a screwdriver and other debris got into the pump station and clogged the two pumps.

It is the fourth time there's been a problem with this pump station and a backup has occurred, according to Warren County officials. The system had been checked Wednesday.

In at least three of the homes, the backup was onto carpeted areas.

County commissioners urged the water and sewer department to get in touch with an insurance company adjuster today to see if the county will need to provide any compensation.
