Valdosta, GA - Residents of a Valdosta neighborhood are suing the city because of ongoing sewage spills they say are damaging their properties.

Residents that live on Meadowbrook Drive say they're tired of parts of their lawns being covered in raw sewage from spills after heavy rains. Although he is not part of the lawsuit, a resident of Meadowbrook Drive shared in the frustrations of that community.

W.R. Hodgins, Meadowbrook Drive resident: "They had a property evaluation since the flood and the values were down from 50 to 150,000 dollars per house and certainly I think that we deserve some kind of compensation for that."

The Valdosta City Attorney said that because of the ongoing litigation they had no comment at this time.
