Rainwater brings up sewage in Shelbyville

-A A +A
By Scotty McDaniel

The city of Shelbyville received some of the heaviest rain it has seen in years last week, causing serious floods -- and sometimes worse.

Clear Creek completely flooded Elmo Head Park, located at the bottom of the hill at 4th and Bradshaw.

With the sewage line under water, a stinking blend of toilet paper, excrement, condoms and the like bubbled up from manhole covers and floated into the stream. As the water receded, some of the mix was left strewn across the park to soak up the sun, giving off an unbearable stench.
