The main pump station valve failure for the Park View Water & Sanitary District, near Eldridge, has been temporarily repaired. Untreated wastewater flowing into nearby Glynns Creek has been stopped.
The district believes it will not have to bypass untreated wastewater in order to make permanent repairs. However, children and pets should still be kept away from Glynns and McDonald creeks until April 20.
Glynns Creek flows north, winding about two miles through Scott County Park, before it flows into McDonald Creek, and then the Wapsipinicon River. Park View is about five miles north of Davenport.
