Clogged Sanitary Sewer

A clogged sanitary sewer manhole in an off-road area between Patricia Anne Drive and Miller Road in Dubuque caused untreated wastewater to flow into Catfish Creek Monday. The public works department was notified about the clog at around 4:30 and crews worked to remove the blockage for about three-and-a-half hours before the flow was redirected back into the pipe. The DNR cautions people to keep their children and pets away from the area, which is posted for at least 48 hours.
