Posted: 04/12/2014
LE CLAIRE – An estimated 17,000 gallons of untreated sewage was released into the Mississippi River on Friday while work was being done on the wastewater treatment system in LeClaire.

The bypass occurred Friday morning during installation of a lift station which pumps sewage back to the plant for treatment. The bypass was stopped on Friday and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources was notified late Friday evening.
