For a couple of weeks now, residents of the small community of Kokomo, Nebraska, have been battling the smell of sewage coming from their taps.
It’s been there since February, and residents say the smell is just getting worse.
They are concerned about the health effects of the smell and the lack of clean water, but also the safety of the residents.ABC News spoke with residents in the town of Kokomos about what they are doing to stop the sewage smell.
One of the main problems they are having is the sewage treatment plant that feeds the town.
The plant has been shut down, and all of the sewage is being sent to a landfill.
Residents are concerned that the water coming from the waste would get contaminated by sewage.
That has prompted them to start a new project to make sure they are getting the proper water.
Residents have started gathering together to clean their taps and sewers and put up signs and banners with messages that read:Don’t let the sewage go to waste.
Keep the water clean.
