Sewerage and Water Board repairs crews take action at a problem spot in the Lower Garden District one day after FOX 8 Defenders call attention to the situation.
Neighbors in the 800 block of St. Andrew say they've been dealing with a leak that's attracting mosquitoes and swarming bees for 2 months.
Sewerage and Water Board crews showed up to the site Friday, the day after FOX 8 aired a story about the problem.
Tonda Martin, who lives in the neighborhood, says Sewerage and Water Board and River Garden apartment managers have blamed each other for the problem. Debbie Taullie, director of Operations at HRI Properties, which manages River Garden apartments, says plumbers have determined the break is on the city side.
