Iowa DNR alerting Rockwell City to wastewater discharge

Posted: Updated:
ROCKWELL CITY (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is urging people in the Rockwell City area to stay away from the Raccoon River.

The tornado Sunday night caused the city to lose power, resulting in a wastewater discharge to a storm sewer.

The Iowa DNR says it happened on the south side of Rockwell City near a pumping station near Tonawanda Street.

They say the amount of discharge is unknown, but residents should keep away for 48 hours.
