Small leak at Northeast Water Reclamation Facility
Approximately 50 gallons of raw sewage leaked from a discharge pump hose during annual maintenance cleaning at the Northeast Water Reclamation Facility at 1160 62 Avenue NE just after noon on November 14, 2017. The leak went directly into a storm drain on the plant property and into a small saltwater pond immediately adjacent to the plant.
The maintenance was stopped until new hoses could be installed. There was no further discharge from the line and no impact on public health or safety.
