“It’s just nasty,” Raw sewage problems persist at Oklahoma City apartments


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A metro apartment in southwest Oklahoma City is plagued with raw sewage problems.  

“It’s just nasty,” said Susan McCoy, who is living in the Windsong Village apartments.  

Feces fills the breezeways outside of McCoy’s apartment. She says it’s been going on since she moved in one year ago.

“I’ve had this problem ever since I lived here…Oh, it gets worse. This is kind of mild mannered because it’s not coming up so bad,” said McCoy.  

McCoy says she can’t even use her own toilet.  

“I go to one of my kid’s house to use the bathroom…I might as well have an outside toilet. I can’t use my stool,” she said.

And down the way, her neighbor, Rosa Rabb, is having similar issues. Her bathtub fills with feces when the sewage stops up.  

“In the tub, boo boo comes up…I definitely got to move out of here,” said Rabb.  

News 4 has reported on the raw sewage problems at the Windsong Village apartments before.  

So far, no answers have been given as to why the backups are happening or when tenants can expect to see the problem resolved.

“If I don’t move, I already got a lot of sickness going and I may end up in the hospital,” said Rabb.

News 4 contacted the property manager, but we weren’t given any answers.  

According to the health department, the inspectors spot to the manager who said the issues has been resolved for the most part but sewage is still a problem in only one area.

KFOR is waiting on a return phone call from the Department of Environment Quality.
