In a blighted urban area in kentucky, they suffer the same situation.
If a group of you get together and bring forth facts that your system is not functioning according to per say code due to their failing system,
you can hold the city liable for disposal fees of sewage. Meaning, they paid to have a company drop a container off where sewage was pumped into it, then the company returned to dispose of it.
Very VERY expensive and the city "instantly" got a budget together to reline/repair those 70+ year old systems in a safe and sanitary condition.
