Bill Francisco drives past a long-closed construction site every day on his way to work, never realizing that a local company was dumping an environmental hazard he is fighting hard to prevent.

“It’s definitely disheartening to see employees of a business” dumping raw sewage on the ground," Francisco said Friday.

Two employees from Roto-Rooter, 311 W. Fairview Ave., were cited for criminal littering Tuesday after a Wheeler Street resident called police to report the men were emptying a sewage collection truck onto the ground.
