LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - All the rain we've been having is putting Little Rock's aging sewer pipes to the test.
Waste water told us that some of their piping is more than 50 years old. Many residents are smelling the problem, and they came to us looking for answers.
Little Rock Waste Water is trying to get funding to prevent these overflows from happening again in Fourche Creek, but right now, it's causing quite a stink for neighbors who like to walk in the park.
Almost every day, you'll find Mclees Baldwin and Terri Leath walking through the old Western Hills Golf Course usually with their dogs.
"We love to walk the whole thing, but when there's a hard rain the sewage is backing up into the area, and it's going in the creek."
Mclees Baldwin has lived in this area for about seven years, and said it's been like this since she moved here.
