An active sanitary by-pass hose installed on Wauona Trail yesterday related to a manhole replacement for the Softball Field project ruptured last night resulting in an significant sewerage spill on Wauona Trail. The spill was contained and sanitary sewer service to the surrounding properties has not been affected. However, this resulted in partial closure of Wauona Trail from Morgan St to Thompson St last night. This closure is continuing this morning to allow the contractor to finish the repairs as quickly as possible as some additional materials and equipment were needed. The repair and clean up is expected to be completed late this morning or early afternoon – all efforts are being made to get the road open ASAP.
However, Wauona Trail will remained closed for the duration of this repair this morning.
