(KSL News) -- Some West Jordan homeowners are cleaning out a sticky, stinky mess in their basements.
A piece of rebar was lodged in a main pipe around 70th South and 35th West, sending raw sewage into basements. At least five to six homes were impacted.
Some residents say they have two to six inches of sludge in their homes.
One homeowner says she found out when city crews knocked on her door.
Jordan Hunt, Homeowner: "The whole basement was flooding. The toilet was regurgitating, just absolutely throwing out the stuff."
Crews were able to repair the clogged culvert and are working to clean up flooded houses.
