Every time it rains, water rises to the curb at an apartment complex in south Dallas.
Residents at the complex on Pine and Hector streets said the nasty water will sometimes remain for several days. They've complained to the city and their landlord, but nothing's been done to fix the problem.
"The only way we can cross the street is if we go way down the block to cross the street. If we can't go to our little corner store we have to walk all the way to the light. That's not right," said Pamela Pratt.
Tenants feared the water would attract mosquitos and water-borne disease. And, they believed it contained raw sewage. However, the city of Dallas said it is only rain water.
Thanks in part to FOX 4, the city finally sent several crews from the water and streets departments to clean things up.
Tanker trucks will be used to suck up the water and then the storm drains will be cleaned.
