(Kansas City, Mo.) – KC Water responded to a wastewater overflow at 2915 Swope Parkway on Saturday, September 29th at 2:25 p.m. The overflow was the result of an 8” clogged sewer main. The overflow ended at 4:25 p.m. the same day and resulted in an overflow of 600 gallons, some of which entered a storm drain that leads to Brush Creek.
A cleaning crew removed the clog and opened the sewer line. KC Water will use CCTV to confirm that all debris has been removed. Warning signs are posted along Brush Creek.
