CHESTER, S.C. - A Chester man said Duke Energy left his yard in shambles after running electricity to his shed.
David Brinson said the utility company didn’t fix it, so he contacted Action 9’s Jason Stoogenke.
"They came out when we weren't here," the homeowner said.
Brinson said crews brought a large trailer and equipment into his yard.
"Did some damage to the yard and dug trenches all the way up and then left a lot of exposed ground, chunks of dirt -- just a mess."
Crews didn’t put any topsoil down or anything to repair the yard, he said.
Stoogenke emailed Duke Energy and a few weeks later, crews seeded his yard and laid down straw to help the grass grow back.
"You guys get stuff done where the regular person on the street can't,” Brinson told Stoogenke.
Action 9 recommends homeowners be present when crews do work on their property, so they can immediately catch any problems.
If there is a problem, and they can’t fix it right away, ask for a supervisor’s contact information.
