Evansdale Issues Warning to Homeowners

Updated: Thursday, May 30 2013, 12:56 PM CDT

EVANSDALE, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28)  -- City leaders in Evansdale are reminding residents about proper usage of sump pumps in order to safe the city's waste water treatment plant.  In a statement, the city says:

"The Evansdale Waste Water Plant has reached its maximum capacity for sewer intake.  To ensure that the treatment plant can continue proper operations, it is mandatory that residents do NOT discharge sump pump run off into floor drains or through the sanitary sewer system.  Doing so overloads the sewer system and  causes sewer backup into your homes.  Instead, discharge all sump pump run off into your yard."

Additionally, water treatment plants throughout the region are expected to face critical conditions as they also try to deal with the storm water run-off.

During the storms in early April, the North Liberty plant nearly overflowed and residents at that time were urged to limit any discharges going into the storm and sewer systems - including limiting the use of toilets.

That admonition will now be repeated throughout eastern Iowa.
