(Kansas City, Mo.) – Two broken sewer mains are affecting operations at KC Water’s Santa Fe Wastewater Pump Station. On Sunday, June 2nd, a 30” force main and a 12” sludge line broke underneath the street at 1200 Woodswether Road. Without those lines in service, KC Water is unable to pump wastewater to the treatment plant and is instead pumping it directly into the Missouri River. KC Water is in contact with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
