Sanitary sewer overflows in Dubuque

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is asking people in Dubuque to keep children and pets away from the site of a sanitary sewer overflow until further notice.

The Dubuque Public Works Department says a problem at a lift station caused a sanitary sewer to overflow into a drainage ditch between Greyhound Park Road and U.S. Highways 151/61 exit ramp.

The Public Works Department was notified of an odor in the area on Monday morning. The lift station has been repaired.
