Some homeowners in Davenport have been dealing with water and sewage back-up in their homes for years, and they want the city to do more to help them solve the problem.

"The manhole is bolted shut and it forced all of the sewer water into our basements," Nina Brooks said.

Nina Brooks is just one of the many homeowners who live on Garfield Street and have to deal with this. She says a sewage back-up once came up to door knobs, forcing her to remove four feet of dry wall.
    
Linda Wiebold, who lives across the street, says she wants the city to do more.

"I would like to see them reimburse us for some of our damages or fix the problem," Wiebold said.

Some residents affected are applying for reimbursement and some may be looking into taking legal action. A city officials say they will meet residents Thursday night at the Davenport Public Works office from 5 to 7 p.m.
