Sauk Rapids Working on Repairs to Sewage Line
SAUK RAPIDS - Sauk Rapids city officials are continuing to work on a broken sewage line, but the raw sewage is no longer flowing into the Mississippi River.
Mayor Dave Saunders says crews were able to divert the sewage at about 5:00 p.m. yesterday (Wednesday). He says they're working to repair the damaged line and make some upgrades. They're also checking two other pumps in the area that were all installed at the same time. The repairs could take up to two weeks.
Raw sewage was dumped into the river for about 15 hours yesterday, but Saunders says he didn't believe there was any concern for residents.
