Equipment failure causes wastewater discharge in Cedar Falls

Posted:

The city of Cedar Falls says an equipment failure at the Cedar Falls Water Reclamation Facility caused partially treated wastewater to reach the Cedar River.  The city says the overflow into the river only occurred for only 1-2 hours before workers discovered the problem around 7 a.m. and took action to stop it by 7:30 a.m.  Due to high dilution rates, the city says it will only have a minimal, short term impact on the river.
