Advisory: Sewer Overflow Near Raleigh Park

February 18, 2017

Clean Water Services' crews responded to a sewage overflow near Raleigh Park Swim Center this afternoon. A sewer line east of the pool near SW 78th Ave. was blocked and sewage was overflowing into Hall Creek as it passes through Raleigh Park.

Crews have cleared the line, stopped the overflow and posted barricades and signs. People and pets should avoid contact with Hall Creek in the area of Raleigh Park for the next 48 hours or until signs have been removed, due to the possibility of increased bacteria in the water. 

Crews are investigating the cause of the overflow.
