SACRAMENTO (KRON) — The drought is not only having an impact on our environment, but it is causing problems for our sewer lines too.
Experts said with much less water being put down into the sewer, waste products are moving much more slowly through local treatment centers.
That is causing more odor complaints, both in the pipeline system and in treatment plants.
And that is not all. Sitting sewage can turn into sulfuric acid, which can eat away at any materials like concrete.
