Concerns have been raised that ongoing sewer repairs could become a public health issue.
The problems in Fairfield Road, Framlingham, were first reported on Thursday, January 5, when the road was closed.
However, it was first thought to be a burst water main and took several days to determine who was responsible for its repair.
After confirming it was a damaged sewer, Anglian Water began working to repair it.
The repairs were initially expected to be completed on Friday, however they are still continuing today.
