Residents on Dens Road have been left fed up as they claim authorities are “passing the buck” over sewage issues in and around their homes.
It was revealed in the Weekend Tele that tenants Carol Kilburn and Gail Taylor had been physically sick as human waste poured into their homes and garden.
The pair said it came to a head last week when they ended up with the mess on their front doorstep and in their homes.
Both occupants complained that the revolting sludge had been seeping through the pipes, leaving their homes stinking.
Carol said the issue has been even worse on Saturday before a friend of Gail’s came and removed some of the waste to alleviate the problem.
She added: “This problem isn’t just affecting our close as I explained before.
“With that in mind it does feel like the authorities and landlords are passing the buck in dealing with this.
“When there are problems surrounding a block I realise it can be difficult to get everyone around the table.
“Surely given the nature of what is going on, instead of pointing the finger of blame, we need to get this resolved as soon as possible.
“We are all fed up, although the smell and sewage hasn’t been as bad since yesterday.
“It is by no means fixed, as there is still bubbling coming up through the pipes when people have had their washing machines on.
“Environmental Health did appear last Friday to help clear up some of the mess as it had also spilled out on to the front steps at one of the other addresses.
“We are still none the wiser as to whose responsibility it is to fix the problem, though, as it is affecting so many properties.
“My fear is, although it has stopped here at the moment, that it could just as quickly come back. It may well be that the problem has only transferred to another block of flats at the moment.”
Scottish Water previously said due to the fact the issue was within private drains the responsibility lay with the owners of the flats.
