NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Sewerage and Water Board will have to pay $500,000 for damage to Uptown homes.

A civil court judge agreed with a prior judge's ruling that the board owes the money to five homeowners after a SELA drainage project cracked their homes' walls and foundation.

The five cases were the first of more than 300 waiting to go to trial.
