GEORGE NEWS FLASH & VIDEO - Rising damp on the walls, water-drenched lawns and a continuous stream of water running down the road to the stormwater drain have three households of Denneoord at their wits' end.
The properties affected are situated in Dennegeur Street (14 to 18). According to residents Marthinus Fourie and Renate Pommee the situation has been ongoing for nearly two years.
They suspect that the cause of the problem stems from the municipal waterworks and dam behind their properties.
"We have had various departments - including the fire brigade - visiting us to see if they can find out what is wrong," said Fourie. "The last person came here two weeks ago and we haven't heard anything again. The problem has not been solved."
