Residents suing over Florence landfill

FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) - A civil suit against the city of Florence is finally underway after a week long delay.

Nearly a dozen residents are suing the city, because they claim the old landfill near their homes is leaking methane gas.

The lawsuit was originally filed more than seven years ago.

The trial is expected to last through the week.
