Raw sewage turned this Park Slope home into a poopy mess: lawsuit
A Brooklyn homeowner claims the city left his pricey Park Slope pad a stinky mess when sewer construction went awry, sending human waste flooding into his basement, according to a lawsuit.
Mark Roth, 45, says the crappy situation began the morning of Sept. 1, 2021, when the work in front of his $3.2 million 4th Street home somehow sent the sewage back into his drains.
“As the day progressed, the problem got worse,” his lawyer, Thomas Tyrrell, said.
That night, Hurricane Ida hit, and the software engineer’s basement ended up with 24 to 36 inches of foul fluid, Tyrell added.
He spent more than $25,000 and a month renovating the basement of the 3,200-square-foot home, which includes four bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
Roth is suing the city and contractor ADC Construction for unspecified damages.
