Lawyers for Crystal Lake Apartments are due in Bibb County municipal court Friday morning for a hearing on past code violations.
But that's not what put the apartment complex in the spotlight.
It started with some orange slips of paper.
Shut-off notices posted by the Macon Water Authority (MWA) in early February informed some people at the Crystal Lake Apartments their water had been cut off.
"This is the second time we've got the notice from the Macon Water Authority, but the first time, they didn't cut us off," said Tasha Brown, a resident in the apartments. "The second time, I guess, they took it upon (themselves) because they really weren't getting their money."
Brown, it turns out, was on to something.
Felicia Parks with the Macon Water Authority told WMAZ on February 5th that the owner owed about $41,000 on their water bill.
Later that week, the water flowed again after Tony Rojas with the Water Authority said the owners agreed to make payments.
That's when things took a turn for the worse.
"Water started just pouring down in my apartment like it was raining inside," said Cheryl Gibbs.
Bibb County fire chief Marvin Riggins said a leaking pipe damaged the electrical system, forcing the water and power to be shut off.
Soon after, Bibb County ordered about 70 tenants to evacuate the main high-and mid-rise buildings
"This is heartbreaking," said Juanita Collins, a tenant at the complex. "It's sad and I'm a little angry."
