People in one Southington neighborhood told Eyewitness News they are fed up about the constant partying near their street. 

In an exclusive interview, neighbors told Eyewitness News it's not a summer time problem, it's a year round problem. They said the partying keeps them awake and leaves behind a complete mess.

“For some reason, this year, it's really exploded,” Southington resident Misty Sposato said.  

Before heading to work on Tuesday, Sposato spends her mornings cleaning up her lawn on Reservoir Ridge Drive.

She then heads to the reservoir across the street to continue picking up everything from beer bottles to beer cans to cigarettes.

“They were here last night,” Sposato said. “And as you can see the beer boxes are down there and they came out of the woods with a cooler."

Sposato said nearly every night between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m., groups of juveniles park in front of her house.

“Of course, you have all the cars pulling up, you hear the car doors slamming and they're locking their doors,” Sposato said. “And you hear beep, beep, beep."

Then, Sposato said they head to the reservoir to party, which a sign clearly states is illegal.

“That's the reservoir,” Sposato said. “They're not even supposed to be going over there anyways."

Sposato said she's now going to the town to ask for no parking signs on her street because other solutions just haven't worked.

“Some people have said why don't you ask them to be quiet,” Sposato said. “We've asked them and the response is not very nice."

Southington Police Department told Eyewitness News they've have been called to the area at least seven times since April and have increased patrols in the area.

Eyewitness News reached out to the town manager to see if they're doing anything to address the problem, but the station did not hear back from the town.
