AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Jamie Watson says that for the two years that he's lived in his home on Victoria Drive, the city has sent someone to cut the grass in the ditch that borders his property.

He says that every time the grass gets cut, an exposed water pipe that lies in the ditch is hit and causes the street to flood.

"We've got a sign up that says 'STOP, WATER PIPE.' But every time they cut the grass...they do not read it," Watson says.

Watson said when the pipe leaks, it also causes his water bill to go up. When he didn't have any luck to filing a complaint with the city, he knew to call 12 On Your Side.

We got in contact with the city's utilities department, and within minutes, the assistant director was at the residence.

He arranged to have the pipe fixed by Monday.
