(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water responded to a wastewater overflow near 5035 Raytown Road which started on July 31, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. and ended August 1, 2019 at 4:25 p.m. A collapsed manhole was found at this location with wastewater surfacing which spilled into Round Grove Creek. Wastewater repair crews are on site. Repair crews are implementing bypass pumping from the upstream manhole to the downstream manhole which will end the sewage from entering into the state’s waters. Repairs to the manhole and the 24” sewer will be started after the bypass pumping is installed and secured.
