FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)-Homes were without sewer service more than a week, but that's come to an end.
For Brian Jones, the celebration started Thursday.
No more driving around trying to make it work.
"My wife actually went to stay at her parent's place in Fort Wayne, and I work in Albion so i would come here in the evenings and check on the house drive to fort wayne to take a shower," Jones said.
Jones and his family were dealing with this until their vacation.
Before they left, the street was completely flooded.
"It got above the sewer manhole covers over here, so they did shut our sewers off for about a week and a half,"he added.
Water is still not at the level he wants it to be.
"It's nice it's going down. It really needs to get down a little bit further before the spring rain starts to come in because if it stays at the level it's at now, we could be in for more flooding."
He doesn't want a repeat of the shut down from February 24.
