UPDATE: Help from Chippewa Valley plumbers could allow residents to keep their homes

Eau Claire (WQOW) – Those living at the Maples Mobile Home Park may get to keep their homes after all – thanks to the generosity of the community.

Roughly six local plumbers were at the park on Monday making repairs to the faulty sewer hookups at some of the properties. That is according to Julian Emerson, an independent journalist, who has been covering the story from the get-go.

Plumbers will be back at the property continuing to make repairs on Tuesday.

As News 18 reported on Friday, some of the park’s tenants are in jeopardy of losing their homes if placarded by the health department for the sewage issues.

“The sewers are old and a lot of the tenants over the years have flushed things through our sewers and it’s been causing blockage and possible breaks. There’s a lot of things underground that we may not even know that need to be fixed,” said Dre Green, a Maples Mobile Home Park resident.

Eau Claire city leaders are set to be at the mobile home park on Tuesday checking to see if repairs have been made. If the repairs are not made it is possible the residents could be kicked out of their home. News 18 will be there on Tuesday and have you updated on air and right here on our website.
