Hi SAFE folks,
You have probably already have this news from someone in SPU, but they have just told me that they investigated the sewer by Ivy’s house and found that in fact there is a break in a portion of the pipe that is SPU property.  That means that SPU is 100% responsible for it.  They say they will replace the whole section of sewer with new pipes.  They also told me that Ivy is eligible to be reimbursed for any damages from the sewage backup, carpeting, floorboards, etc.  To get reimbursed she will have to submit that claim form that I forwarded.

Ivy Williams and Jane Jackson cannot afford $50,000 to repair a sewer pipe 150 feet from their homes, and they cannot live in raw sewage. This is what city governments are for. Join SAFE (Standing Against Foreclosures and Evictions) as they demand that the City of Seattle fix this problem.
