Sewer plug cleared in Cedar Falls

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- An overflowing wastewater sewer line has been fixed in Cedar Falls. 

City crews were found a plugged sanitary sewer line in a field west of the intersection of Eagle Ridge Rd. and Whitetail Drive Tuesday.  They found wastewater flowing out of a manhole and into a drainage ditch.

Crews spent several hours working to unplug the line and stop the overflow.

They returned again Wednesday to find the line plugged a second time.  After clearing the plug and repairing a broken pipe, the area was sprayed with a disinfectant.

People are advised to stay clear of the area for a few days.
