DNR investigates wastewater spill in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD (KWWL)-- Millions of gallons of untreated wastewater poured into a creek in Fairfield in the course of a week.

The DNR says an alarm system failed, causing 3.7 million gallons of wastewater to flow into Cedar Creek.

City officials say an equipment malfunction also contributed to the problem. The DNR is investigating and will decide if any further action will take place.
