Residents advised about wastewater discharge

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Water Services Department and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources report that a sewer overflow on Nov. 23 in the 8400 block of Main Street discharged an estimated 1,200 gallons of wastewater into a unnamed tributary that runs into the Blue River.

The overflow was discovered and corrected within three hours. The overflow occurred because of debris that had collected in the sewer system. The area has been posted to notify the public that a sewage spill has occurred.

For more information, contact Colleen Doctorian, public information officer for the Water Services Department at (816) 513-0232.

The Kansas City, Mo., Water Services Department maintains and operates water collection, processing and distribution systems, stormwater management and control systems, and waste water collection and processing systems for residential and business customers in Kansas City and for wholesale customers in the Kansas City region. Operation is funded entirely by fees charged to customers based on their use of products and services, not by taxes.
