HURON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Residents of a Detroit-area community say they’re frustrated by a drain system problem that resulted in fish getting into a home’s basement.

WXYZ-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1IMYhkK ) that for months water has been filling up basements and yards in Wayne County’s Huron Township.

Scott Whitehouse had two pumps running from his house and says he’s had to pump out water through the night.

Neighbors say dozens of homes are affected by the drain system problem. In one instance, Whitehouse found fish in his basement crawl space.

Wayne County says it’s using a contractor to pump out water from several areas in the township and will continue to do so as they work on a permanent solution.

Residents say they’re worried about health issues and a bad smell in some of their homes.
