Missouri River Taking the Hit for Recent Sewer Line Breaks

Sewage is spilling into the Missouri River and the problem may be worse than originally thought.

Sewage lines near one of Kansas City, Missouri’s wastewater treatment plants in the West Bottoms have busted and are leaking into the Missouri River. In total, three pipes are broken.

To go along with the three broken pipes: a massive sinkhole.

Two pipes, 30 inches and 12 inches in diameter broke by the treatment plant. Crews are working around the clock to try and get the problem under control.

The culprit: could be the fact that the pipes are almost 100 years old.

The heavy rains in the area are diluting any sewage flow into the river and everyone is thankful for that.
