    S1 E1 Alabama

    In what residents of Loundes County, Alabama refer to as a forgotten area of the country, many homes go without proper sewage systems. In one home we visit, it is nothing more than a pipe that dumps directly from the toilet to a pit in the backyard, steps away from a window. Where septic systems are installed, sewage backups are all too common, spewing all manner of waste back into homes.
