PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

An Ascension Parish homeowner shocked by a $700 water bill is getting some help after being featured in a Contact 9 report.

Kristina Smallhorn bought her house on Highway 42 in Prairieville three months ago. A big road widening project is going on there. 

Smallhorn said a crew with Wharton-Smith Construction company busted her septic line and also hit her water line causing two leaks. 

After the report aired on August 3, Smallhorn said the construction company came out and fixed her septic line and put in a new pump.

She added that Ascension Water is reviewing the damage on its end.
