A water restriction for some Brandon homeowners continues Sunday after a sewer lift station went down Saturday night.
City officials say homeowners are at risk of having raw sewage flow into their homes. Homeowners east of Splitrock Boulevard in Brandon are the ones that will have to deal with this issue.
Brandon Director of Public Works Rollie Hoeke says homeowners did a good job restricting their water use overnight, but Sunday was a struggle.
The city found out about this issue after one home had sewage coming up through its floor drain.
The Public Works Department has been working for hours trying to pump the water from the sewer lift station using generators, but it has not been able to keep up with the water usage of the city.
Hoeke points to restricting showers and doing minimum amounts of laundry to help with the water usage.
The city is bringing in a contractor to install a temporary pump on Sunday.
