The Jefferson Square Apartment Complex had their water turned off on Sunday.
"We're all single mothers out here. We all have kids. We all have families that we're trying to take care of and it's kinda hard to do when you can't even cook, clean, you know we have dirty dishes that are piled up because we can't wash dishes. It's ridiculous," Vanessa Cardens, another resident adds.
Aside from residents having dishes piled high, the residents couldn't even send their kids to school.
"They weren't able to go to school because I didn't have no water. Like I said, the water's been cut off for two days. So I didn't want them to go to school without taking a bath," Leslie Patten says.
While the water was turned Tuesday,the residents say this has happened several times in the past and are fearful for the future.
The Water Department also says that this is not the first time that they have had a problem with the account holder paying the bill for the Jefferson Square Apartments.
"There has been problems of timely payment in the past. That is something I can confirm," Wayne Lisenbee, the Assistant Director of Water Utilities says.
The Water Department was forced to shut the complex's water off and hoped it would get the landlord to pay as soon as possible.
"I just want to apologize to any customers or tenants that were adversely affected by this. It is our last resort to make collection on something like this and we worked with them for several months before it got to this point. And I'm glad their water has been put back on and hope we don't have to do this again," Wayne Lisenbee adds. .
