Evansville homeowner experiences flooding every time it rains

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

An Evansville homeowner says every time it rains his property floods and he says the city won't help him with the problem.

Mark Geren says he's lost tens of thousands of dollars because of flooding over the years.

He says the city fixed a ditch on one side of his street to help with the back-up in the neighborhood but he says they won't fix the other side, which causes a big problem.

Mark Geren's has lived here for 11 years and for the past seven he says any time it rains it floods.

Mark says the reason behind all the water is a pipe that backs up.  

It's a pipe he wants the city to fix but says they won't because of a city-county feud on who's responsible even though the city fixed a ditch only feet away. 

Mark says he's not the only neighbor upset and the city has actually fixed pipes out here before but he says he wants to see more done, especially with everything he's lost.
