UPDATE: Apartment tenants living with human waste in their homes

It is the complaint of residents of the Arioso Apartments in northeast Albuquerque.

There's human waste everywhere on the floor and on the walls.

Residents tell us that this kind of thing happens in their complex on the ground floor once every four months. They tell us they've been dealing with this for weeks and management won’t do anything about it. There is sewage coming up out of the drainage of the bathtubs, the toilets, and the sinks.

“That's feces! In there that's just freaking sewage everywhere,” said one resident.

In some apartments sewage has made its way to the living room and hallways.

Quickly after KOB left the apartments, management immediately made strives to fix the issue.

There will be more details on this story tonight at 10 on KOB 4.
