When it rains, the runoff is supposed to drain into a pipe that comes out at the bottom of the wall. Instead, when it rains hard, the runoff cascades through and over the top of the wall.
Todd Ferguson, who lives in the neighborhood, is afraid the wall will eventually collapse, and the house behind and above him will be in his backyard. Ferguson said the wall turns his backyard into a swamp, and it's causing his foundation to sink and crack. Several families living in the neighborhood want their homebuilder to buy back their homes.
Ryland Homes told News 4 WOAI it's still in the process of fixing the wall. The company also said it stands ready to fix any problems homeowners on Biltmore Lakes Road have, but buying back the homes is not an option.
