(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water responded to a wastewater overflow near 3214 E 53rd Street on Tuesday, April 2nd at 3:00 p.m. It ended a short time later at 4:15 p.m. and resulted in an overflow of approximately 375 gallons of wastewater. Some of the spilled wastewater entered Town Fork Creek which leads to Brush Creek.
The overflow was the result of a clogged 15” sewer main. An investigation crew will use a camera to make sure all of the debris has been removed. Lime will also be applied to the area.
