A leak spilling sewage across three floors of a Queens housing complex has outraged tenants and their local city councilman.
The sewage leak at the South Jamaica Houses is the latest black eye for the problem-plagued New York City Housing Authority, which took more than 12 hours just to send somebody with a mop, frustrated residents said.
The smelly sewage spill flooded the basement and the first two floors, closing the community center and forcing the cancellation of several activities.
Residents said the flooding began Sunday evening at about 6 p.m., but has been an ongoing issue for about three years.
Fed-up tenants, dissatisfied with the city's response, reached out to Councilman Ruben Wills, who chastised the agency for the mishap.
