The US Department of Justice and Health and Human Services have announced their findings after investigating the Alabama wastewater crisis.

The investigation was launched after reports that the Loud County Health Department had discriminated against Black residents by not taking meaningful action to address sewage system failures.

The investigation found that state and county officials, including the health department, had failed to adequately remedy the civil rights condition.

The findings revealed that impoverished communities were being forced to live amid human waste due to a lack of working sewage systems.

The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice stated that too many communities of color are struggling for clean water and air, which are consequences of pollution and underinvestment in wastewater.

As a result, federal officials will enter into an agreement that includes sending sanitation laws to the area, improving access to sanitation systems within a year, and determining who needs septic tanks.

The DOJ says this does impact predominantly Black people in the area.

Residents have reported living with raw sewage, smells, and health risks associated with living amid raw sewage.

Officials have suspended their investigations for now while they get into confinement but plan to reopen them later.
