KENNEWICK, WA - Several Kennewick homeowners are cleaning their homes after sewage started pouring into their homes Wednesday afternoon.

A homeowner tells NBC Right Now the sewage was coming out of all the drains in their home on South Irving Street - the toilet, the sink, and the shower.

The sewage was several inches deep on the floor of their home before it stopped.

"Every thing that we had in the basement is toast. So, not a good day," Tim Winters described.

The sewage started seeping at about 4:30P.M. Wednesday and the Winters tried calling the City of Kennewick, but they couldn't get anyone. So they called 9-1-1.

The City of Kennewick Waste Water Department and Kennewick Firefighters were on the scene when NBC Right Now showed up.  
Winters and firefighters had to dig a trench from the house to drain some of the sewage water into a nearby irrigation canal.

The homeowners tell us the house isn't livable. They also say the City of Kennewick isn't taking responsibility right now. Currently, the city is investigating.
