Cherokee Wastewater Release

CHEROKEE, Iowa (AP) – Officials say the city of Cherokee accidentally released several hundred gallons of wastewater.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the release happened Thursday morning after a relief valve failed on a force main.

Officials say the untreated water entered a storm sewer that flows into the Little Sioux River. Most of the wastewater soaked into the ground.

Repairs were completed about 2 p.m. Thursday. DNR officials will continue to monitor the incident.
