Ewwww!!!

Warning: this post contains probably the most disgusting pictures ever posted on this website.  A reader sent these two photos showing raw sewage bubbling out of a manhole cover at the intersection of Northside Drive and Kimwood after the storm yesterday.  This not the first time JJ has received a complaint about this problem.  The reader stated in his email:

These were taken about an hour after yesterday's early afternoon storm. Intersection is Kimwood Dr and E Northside Dr. Yes, that's raw sewage. The manhole cover had been pushed off of the hole by the force of the rising sewage, posing even more immediate risk than the atrocious sanitation hazard.  It appeared the sewage was continuously pouring out of the hole over into the street when these photos were taken.
The photos were sent to the administration.

And Jackson wants to sue Rankin for wanting to build their own plant....

This is an EPA violation requiring immediate reporting to MDEQ under the City's consent decree. Undoubtedly the City complied with the decree and self-reported, and is taking the required remediation steps. NOT.

But hey, lets spend $100k on prosecuting whitey who paid his wife's $1700 cell phone bill. #priorities.

Once they run the tax payers out of town this will happen on the reg. #betthat

Yet another example of how Jackson residents choose to endanger their families. I have no sympathy for people who have the means to get out but chose to stay. I do, however, feel very sorry for their families. Who must go about their daily lives dealing with both health and physical dangers. Simply because the Head of Household doesn't care enough about their well being.

Maybe if the city didn't have so many thugs like the one recently convicted for stealing money to pay his wife's phone bill we wouldn't see this.

Been leaving comments here about the same problem for years. All that untreated sewage flows directly to the Eastover lakes and then into the Pearl. But you won't hear anything out of Ladd, Stauffer and those against the One Lake project demanding an end to raw sewage pollution discharges in the river.

How is this possible given the proximity to Whole Foods?

So how is the current administration supposed to make the necessary repairs? Where's the money going to come from? The state has multiple properties they do not pay anything on, but utilize the infrastructure the same as a resident and contribute "sh*t" 24/7.

Its easy to say what should be done, but no one ever offers any solutions on how to get it done, since they know everything.

Just a bunch of arm chair quarterbacks, b*tching about the play calling.

This is caused by rainwater infiltration into the sewer lines. this is because of holes in the sewer lines. The volume of wastewater then becomes too much for the system to handle so it backs up. The sewer lines either need to be replaced or repaired. Sometimes it may be just one big hole in the sewer line that can be repaired relatively inexpensively. The city would have to smoke test the lines to find where the rain water is infiltrating the lines.

One more thing, many times it is the residents' own lines that need repairing because that can be where the rainwater enters the sewer lines.

There you go 1:40! Blame the stupid ass taxpayers who haven't left yet!

11:08am, thanks to Trump there soon won't be an EPA. So Jackson has nothing to worry about. Screw the consent decree!

PittPanther said...

In this day of unlimited minutes, text, and data, how exactly do you run up a $1700 cell phone bill?

Johnny Weir said...

I filed a complaint with the EPA. Sent those pictures in.
I no longer live in Jackson. Take action. File too. Below is the web address.

1:33 When someone GIVES you the car it doesn't mean they're gonna keep paying the repairs when you have it.

Wow you ain't never seen a little poop before. A Lil bit escapes every rain, sometimes you see it sometimes you don't, even in Madison, Clinton or anywhere else.

We had the same deluge in Madison.

Fortunately the fake stucco seems undamaged :-)

Keep gloating, Jacktowners...

@ 1:40pm

Finally someone with some knowledge on how to address the issue.

@ 1:51pm

So we continue the cycle of moving to the suburbs, to continue building sh*t and then no longer doing maintenance to maintain the new sh*t built!

That is so hot.....I know where I'm going mudding later....

@1:33 - I don't claim to have all the answers nor know where the money is going to come from. However, I imagine residents of NE Jackson would rather the city make strides to repair sewage issues than to be wasting resources building beds and planting shrubs in the Lakeland Dr medians from 55 to Ridgewood. The city only cuts the grass in the medians twice a summer, when it's knee high, overtaking the curbs and growing into the traffic lanes. The grass will be higher than the planted bushes if the current mowing schedule continues. Talk about polishing a turd!

What does the City do with its CDBG money that come in every year to used to fix these problems.

1:52, Pittpanther, cell phone bills add up each month. Allen did not pay the phone bills until he was caught. He owed that much for all of the months he didn't pay. Just another benefit he thought was owed to him just for being him.

Hey dumbest @4:22- the city didn't pay for the median landscaping. It was Lafleur East Foundation and private money. Why don't you do something beneficial with your time like the volunteers at LEF instead of being a douche.

Anonymous said...

All knowing @5:04- LE needs to promote their project more. Half of my coworkers live in or near LE and suspected it was a Yarber reelection project.

Looks like the back door to City Hall.

Poppin' Lids and looking said...

If you think those photos are disgusting, go have a look at the "skid marks" via street view within Google Earth. Without a doubt somebody has plumbed the storm sewer (rain runoff that enters the grate inlets in the curb of the street) into the sanitary sewer (the shizzle), if I was a betting man I'd pick the grate inlet in the curb just a few feet to the west of the problem manhole...the one with pavement repairs in front of it. So the next time we get a heavy rain in that area, squirt a full bottle of dish soap into that grate inlet and I bet you get bubbly out of the suspect manhole. Hopefully the water valve next to the sanitary sewer manhole in question is ok. Cheers!

Please flush twice-it's a long way to City Hall.

Stucco is stucco. There is no such thing as 'fake' Stucco. The shitters and lines in Madison work fine. Shit flows south when mixed with a sufficient amount of water. It's not until the byproduct crosses County Line headed south that these problems 'surface'.

All problems surface in Jackson. Throw rocks and bottles at it.

Maybe changing the names of the streets will stop the flow of raw sewage. Looks like name changing is at the top of the list of things to do by the city council.

Hey, maybe we should bring in AECOM and the "Jackson 5" featuring political operative Mitzi Bickers...Our opening act could be strippers wearing body paint to get the Einsteins in city hall fired up to take action on raw sewage spilling in our streets...

Are you the same jackass who intermittently brays about "fake columns", and about everything in Madison being of brick? Are you somebody's alcoholic brother-in-law, being paid pennies-per-post, for these pitiful attempts at attacks?

In any event, your frequent use of the term, "fake stucco", led me to look up the definition of 'Stucco'. From Wikipedia: "Modern stucco is used as an exterior cement plaster wall covering. It is usually a mix of sand, Portland cement, lime and water, but may also consist of a proprietary mix of additives including fibers and synthetic acrylics that add strength and flexibility." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stucco)

As I suspected, there is NO SUCH THING AS "FAKE STUCCO". Since another poster, after having established that there are no such things as "Fake Columns", seems to have caused you to stop (if only temporarily) carping about "Fake Columns", I'm hoping that the above information will (for as long as your gin-soaked brain can remember it) cause you to shut up about the "Fake Stucco".

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
