City Crews Stop Wastewater Sewer Line Overflow Tuesday

The Wastewater Division of the City Transportation and Utilities Department on Tuesday removed a blockage in a sanitary sewer line that led to an overflow and release of wastewater from a manhole near the intersection of North Cotner Boulevard and Vine Street. The overflow occurred in the parking lot of the Chateau La Fleur Apartments, 6100 Vine St. The wastewater exited a private manhole and ran across the parking lot into a storm inlet and then into Dead Man’s Run. The cause of the stoppage has not been determined.
