Simply call your local DEQ or health department and they have 24 hours to response to the situation and tell you of their findings. It is not a requirement to give your name.
Carl is correct, it’s a serious health threat, call your states health department.
If that doesn’t work, call your local news channels, one of them will probably run the story.
Michael, Carl and Coach are correct. It doesn’t matter who the landlord is, he needs to keep the property safe and habitable. You can help the authorities by taking pictures, making notes, getting statements from neighbors and so on. In defense of the landlord, excessive rain might cause problems, especially if anyone has tied roof gutters or yards drains to a septic tank, which is a no-no.
