Plugged manhole causes sewer overflow in Dubuque

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A plugged sanitary sewer manhole has caused untreated wastewater to flow into the street in Dubuque.

The public works department says it's in the area of Hill Street and Caledonia Place.

However, the blockage was removed Friday afternoon.

The Iowa DNR warns people to keep their children and pets away from the area for 48 hours.
