South Sioux City officials say action is being taken to deal with a sewer gas backup that is affecting some homes in a neighborhood of that city.

City Administrator Lance Hedquist says the city has received calls from around 15 residents about the problem:


OC………Big Ox company. :21

Hedquist says this is a new issue with Big Ox Energy.

The plant came on line with the city sewer system about 3 weeks ago and processes waste from other plants and generates methane gas:


OC………….quick as possible. :24

One resident left their home and stayed at a hotel for a night because of the odor.

Hedquist says each home is being checked for gas levels and to make sure there’s no other health issue:


OC……..time frame on that. :17

Homes in the affected area are from Red Bird Lane to Lemasa Drive and 39th street to 32nd street.
