My husband and I own a café, the town installed new water lines in the street outside the restaurant. the town did not mark the sewer lines and the one in front of the restaurant was crushed. It caused our basement to overflow in 6" of raw sewer. We had to immediately close down. My landlord had an open sewer line in the basement. He did hire a local sewer co to pump it out, only getting the water. The solids were left behind. He hired ServPro to finish the cleaning. He has been very hard o get in touch with, leaving servepro with no access to the basement. We have lost a week of income and the small community now knows our basement was full of sewer. I know our business will suffer dramatically from this. We have worked 80 hrs a week for the last 4 years to build our business
