(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water responded to a wastewater overflow near 10032 Bennington Ave. on Monday, May 22 at 1:45 p.m. The overflow was the result of a grease stoppage in an 8” sewer main and did reach state waters. The overflow ended at 3:19 p.m. the same day and resulted in 940 gallons of wastewater being discharged into a storm drainage ditch leading to a pond at 10201 Beacon Avenue.
Cleaning crews opened the sewer main and restored normal flow to the collection system. Lime was applied to the area. Crews will televise the main to confirm all grease has been removed.
