DNR: Keep kids and pets away from wastewater spill in Vinton

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources say about 700 gallons of wastewater spilled on Thursday afternoon into a ditch in Vinton. City workers closed the pumps at the K Avenue pumping station to stop the spill, but some of the waste made its way into Hinkle Creek.

Kids and pets should steer clear of that area for the next 48 hours; the city is disinfecting the flow while water samples are getting tested, and the DNR is monitoring the cleanup.
