McALESTER -- The collapse of a sewer main resulted in a big stink within a city neighborhood.

The McAlester News-Capital reports that city officials sucked up the raw sewage, then dumped it into an open ditch that runs through the housing addition.



When residents complained about the smell, the city waded in to handle the situation.

Resident Sherry Miller was quoted: “It smelled real bad.”

The newspaper reported that city workers used a discharge hose to dump the raw sewage into the ditch in front of several homes.

As it turns out, that is standard procedure when such a collapse occurs, city officials said.

When the sewage is cleaned up, city crews will pour bleach on the area.
