(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water responded to a wastewater overflow near 8500 E. 93rd Street on Monday, May 21, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. The overflow was the result of a clogged 8” sewer main. Cleaning crews cleared the main to restore normal flow to the system.
The overflow ended 45 minutes later and spilled approximately 2,250 gallons of wastewater into a catch basin that leads to the Little Blue River. Because this happened during a heavy rain event the spilled wastewater was highly diluted.
