“Rats literally coming out of the toilet in Dupont”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Dupont and we have a huge rat issue. We recently had a few come through the pipes in our toilet (like they physically tried to crawl out when I flushed – everyone’s worst nightmare). I’m at my wits end trying to find some sort of solution to this, or find anyone who has encountered this before.

After using the bathroom, a housemate flushed the toilet and looked down to see two rats coming out of the pipe in the toilet bowl. Long story short, we’re waiting on a plumber to scope our pipes to find out if there is a crack in our house sewage line, or if there’s a crack in the city pipes leading to our house.

Do you know of anything like this happening in the Dupont area?? We’ve been in contact with DC Water & Sewage and they were pretty surprised to hear about this.

P.S… who knew rats could swim for three days…”

Ed. Note: We’ve, sadly, definitely spoken about this in the past. I can’t find all the old posts but it has happened in many different neighborhoods. And now I’m going to look for the higest ABV beer in my fridge.
