Neighborhood complains about lingering leak

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Residents in the 1700 block of Harvard Avenue say they have been dealing with a water leak for more than a month. 

"It is really deep, and it is getting worse and worse," says Margaret Powell as she walks along the puddle. 

She says the puddle appeared about a month ago, and it seems to be coming from a small water leak on the street. 

Powell says she has called the City of Shreveport about the issue numerous times. "I've been calling practically every day."

Powell is not the only resident concerned, so is Bert Tyler. "I park in the driveway, I come out and I gotta get out in all of this mess," says Tyler. 

Residents say the puddle has also created a mosquito problem.

The City of Shreveport says a work order has been placed for the water leak, and that crews have made checks on the issue. Also, representatives with the Public Works Department say the issue should be fixed by Friday.
