DENVER — For weeks, a Denver family has been out of their home, getting the runaround and wondering how they are going to pay for thousands of dollars in damage.
They reached out to Contact Denver7, and they are already getting results.
At Kelsie Shippy’s Washington Park Bungalow, something stinks, and it’s not just the sewer link in her basement.
“Sept 13, we noticed a leak in our basement,” said Shippy. “We’ve haven’t been able to live at home for the last three weeks because of this leak. We had to shut off the water.”
Three weeks ago, without warning, she says crews installed a utility vault (box) right next to her house, directly over a sewer line.
“This is a letter from a plumber,” she said, showing a statement from a plumbing company that shows the plumber thought something went wrong when crews dug the hole for the vault.
