Thousands of gallons of sewage flow into stream

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — At least 20,000 gallons of sewage flowed into an Iowa City stream after workers damaged a pumping station.

The Department of Natural Resources says the release happened Saturday evening at the Modern Manor Mobile Home Court while workers were cleaning a pumping station.

Between 20,000 and 30,000 gallons of sewage flowed into an unnamed tributary of Snyder Creek.

The DNR says it’s monitoring the situation.
