Spanish Fort Bluff Erosion Update

Spanish Fort Bluff Erosion Update

Posted: Updated:
Spanish Fort, Alabama -

A judge has ordered the city of Spanish Fort to repair a drainage and runoff problem affecting homes on Patrician Drive.

The runoff problem has caused sinkholes and erosion, forcing at least one homeowner to move for safety reasons.

Several backyards have been swallowed up. Many homes are dangerously close to sliding off the cliff.

Judge Langford Floyd has given the city 12 months to fix the problem and upheld a half a million dollar judgment two homeowners were awarded for property damages and emotional distress.

The city of Spanish Fort says it's not responsible for the problem. The city has filed an appeal.
