Sanitary sewer overflow in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A blocked pipe in Dubuque today caused a sanitary sewer to overflow.

The overflow, which happened near the intersection of Collins Street and St. Joseph's Street, caused untreated wastewater to flow into the storm sewer system. 

Crews had the block fixed in less than an hour from the time it was reported, the city said. 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources urges people to keep their children and pets away from the area for two days.
