GRAVESEND - Tenants of the Marborough Houses apartment building say sewer water backed up into their homes Thursday.

Resident Esther Solis says she found sewer water in the bathtub and on the floors. After News 12 Brooklyn contacted the management to investigate the problem, a cleaning squad arrived to clean Solis' apartment.

Solis says her apartment was first flooded in 2002. She filed a case in court and was awarded $250 for items that were damaged.

A Housing Authority representative says an estimate will be given on how much damage resulted from the flood.
