Sewer leak closes Cedar Falls intersection

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A sanitary sewer leak has closed down the intersection of East 15th and Bluff Streets in Cedar Falls.

The intersection will be closed until Thursday or Friday due to a large, pressurized sanitary sewer line leaking.

The leak resulted in about 50,000 gallons of wastewater pouring into Dry Run Creek late Wednesday afternoon.  The leak was eventually controlled by city crews and is currently being taken care of with auxiliary pumps until it can be repaired Thursday.

Residents downstream of the leak should avoid that part of Dry Run Creek until Friday.
