San Fransisco Pay Homeowners $4.4M Settlement Over Raw Sewage Flooding

The multimillion-dollar figure, made up of 19 individual settlement agreements that will be introduced to the Board of Supervisors for approval Tuesday, is expected to resolve claims from homeowners who say their property values have been diminished by persistent flooding.
