SHENANDOAH - Wednesday morning, officials with the Shenandoah Wastewater Treatment Plant reported a system failure at the treatment plant.

A short time ago repairs were made to the system that failed earlier this morning at the wastewater treatment plant. 

DNR recommends anyone avoid contact with the East Nishnabotna River at County Road J32 (190th Street) west of Shenandoah for the next 24 to 48 hours after the discharge ends. Farmers downstream should find alternative sources of drinking water for livestock.

The DNR will continue to monitor the situation and provide technical assistance, and consider enforcement action if appropriate.
