“Residents who live on Hansell Drive, in Bensalem, are fed up with the sewage smell in their neighborhood. A few weeks ago, a sewage line carrying waste from a sprawling apartment complex nearby ruptured and leaked from storm drains in a field near their properties.
“It’s a private line that goes through there and we react immediately because of the problems here, in Bensalem,” Bensalem mayor, Joe Digirolamo, said.
The dedicated sewer line was on private property and owned by Bucks Meadow Apartments. Bensalem officials contacted them and the DEP and it took a couple of weeks before a private contractor came in, cleared the sewage clog and made repairs.
But, residents aren’t convinced all is well. They have long dealt with living in a low-lying and flood prone area and worry about the future. They’ve been asking officials for reports, showing the system is, in fact, intact.”

From what residents are reporting it appears that the issue of this ruptured line hasn’t fully been resolved. Each day dealing with such foul odors leads to frustration and embarrassment. What makes this matter even worse is the fact that the problem resides with an apartment complex which one would expect to take swift action.
