Stale sewage has flooded my garden and destroyed my daughter’s memorial… my heart is broken but no one cares
A woman is heartbroken when a memorial garden for her late daughter was ruined by dirty sewage.
Lindsay Bennett says her backyard has become a sewage swamp after dirty water seeped into the grass around her Worcester home.
The water has a foul odor that has made Ms. Bennett sick several times since she was discovered on Monday morning.
As Worcester News reports, tiny bits of toilet paper can be seen in the dark brown water.
The cat had come down to take out Tinkerbell when she saw that her garden was littered with dirt.
She said: “She was my daughter’s cat so I didn’t want to lose her, I was so scared.
“It was around 7.15, I called my estate agent straight away and I called anyone from Environmental Health.”
Ms Bennett says the stinky sludge could destroy the flowers she left for her daughter Emily, who died of heart failure and pneumonia in January.
She is unable to retrieve the trinkets from the display because a pool of contaminated water is preventing her from reaching them.
Dealing with wild water is overwhelming.
She said: “I lost my daughter a long time ago and it’s just a lot to take.
“All the flowers in my daughter’s memorial garden are about to die, it’s been horrible.”
She says that she has tried to contact Severn Trent, but she feels that no one cares about her problem.
The Hereford and Worcester Fire Service attended to the property but were unable to do anything about it.
Environmental Health has also visited Ms. Bennett’s home, but she has been unable to change her situation.
A Severn Trent garbage disposal truck was seen parked outside Ms Bennett’s home on Tuesday morning.
The water company has been contacted for comment.
