Sewage Concerns Vicco Residents

{Vicco, Kentucky}...Sewage running into a creek in Perry County has the people of Vicco concerned about the health of the residents and wildlife. Although Mayor Johnny Cummings says sewage does not continuously run into the creek, Billy Banks says water from polluted rivers has been shipped back to residents, the hospital and the restaurants for people to drink. Cummings says the problem stems from bad pumps and switches at the Vicco Utilities Plant, which is very outdated and needs to be fixed, but there's not enough funding to get that done.
