Sanitary Sewer Overflow Incident Report, City of Robinson WWTF

There was a discharge of the Kieffer Interceptor sewer line on about 12/4/17 to 12/6/17 at 2:30 pm. A large ball of nylon rope and accumulating rags caused the plug in the 18″ sanitary sewer thus backing it up and overflowing onto the ground and into the wooded area just east of the old railroad right-of-way at 709 E. Oak St. We estimate approximately 50,000 gallons of domestic wastewater was released and a portion of that may have entered the creek just east of the overflowing manhole. This is in a remote wooded area and we were unaware of this overflow until an adjacent property owner reported it to us. The line was cleared of debris and was functioning correctly as of 12/5/17 at 2:30 pm.
