ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — A sewage spill in St. Augustine is affecting the waterways.
The city put up signs to warn people about the sewage leak.
However, the people who live the closest to the water, like those on boats, said they wanted more than a sign.
Steve Moore lives on his boat at the English Landing Marina on the San Sebastian River in St. Augustine.
St. Augustine's Public Works Deputy Director Todd Grant said the ten inches of rain Thursday and Friday was too much for the old clay sewage pipes to handle. It's the second time this year there has been a sewage leak because of so much rain.
"And so as the gravity system backs up, it starts to leak out of manholes," Grant explained.
