Broughton said the city told him the pipe was clogged. The sewage, he said, was easily up to his ankles.
“It was a heck of a clog,” he said. “They said it was due to mainly tissue paper, an excessive use of tissue paper.”
The Fairborn resident said the city also is working with him to file a claim and added that the city apologized for the issue.
Broughton said he expects to have some reconstruction work to do in the basement, but was able to save a lot of items.
