Lincoln city crews stop wastewater sewer line overflow

  • Updated

The Wastewater Division of Lincoln Transportation and Utilities contained and stopped wastewater overflow Sunday after finding a power failure at a lift station near North 31st Street and Salt Creek.

The power failure prevented pump movement, which allowed wastewater to back up in the sanitary sewer collection system to a manhole near North 33rd Street and Salt Creek Circle, according to a release from the city. The wastewater overflowed into an adjacent storm sewer inlet and into the storm sewer system.

The Wastewater Division received a call at about 2 p.m. on Sunday and tracked the source to the power outage at the North 31st Street Lift Station. Lincoln Electric System made repairs and normal lift station operations resumed three hours later.
