They found sewage leaking into the bayou. According to those volunteers, the problem stems from a hole in a sewage pipe that runs underneath a bridge.

They say the dirty water discharges when excess pressure builds up in the pipe.

Crews say they've been complaining about the leak for five years, but no one has fixed it yet.
