A warning from Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources about wastewater in Davenport.
Public Works responded to an odor complaint and found some tainted water seeped into Silver Creek near Covington Drive.
A sewage pipe eroded and broke.
The area is heavily wooded and not easy to access so it might take a few days to repair.
Silver Creek flows into Duck Creek and through several parks before reaching the Mississippi River.
The D.N.R. recommends keeping kids and pets away from the area.
