The public is advised to avoid a portion of Irvingdale Park, near S. 20th and Van Dorn streets for the next 24 hours, following a sanitary sewer overflow early Friday. The leak near a storm culvert just north of Van Dorn Street resulted from damage during construction work. The overflow totaled 20 gallons and did not enter the park creek. Cleanup will be complete by 4 p.m.
For more information on the overflow, contact Brian Kramer with the Wastewater Collection Division at 402-441-7961. More information on wastewater operations is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: wastewater).
