COPY-Sewage issues may prompt relocation of inmates

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - More than 120 Kilby Correctional Facility inmates may be relocated while state corrections officials address a drainage and sewage problem at the facility.

The Montgomery Advertiser ( ) reported Wednesday that the county's food and lodging supervisor and the environmental supervisor for the Alabama Department of Corrections Henrietta Peters discussed the potential move on Sept. 12.

Documents obtained by the newspaper outline a plan to upgrade the facility's plumbing and drainage system after inmates' families complained about smells of sewage and drainage issues.

Some of the complaints about the facility have said sewage backed up into urinals, and a constant smell of sewage lingered in the dorm area.
