In collaboration with Johnson County Wastewater (JCW), the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE) has issued a public health advisory to residents living between 123rd Street and Metcalf and 123rd/124th Street and Roe Boulevard in Overland Park, due to a sanitary sewer line break that may have broken when the sanitary sewer crossing was damaged by heavy rain.
JCDHE advises individuals to have no contact with the creek water in this area until further notice. Residents are also advised to keep their pets from making contact with the creek water. This does not represent any impact/implications to the public water system (i.e. tap water).
JCW will post signage in this area, is monitoring this location and conducting water quality tests on the tributary to determine when this notice can be lifted. An update will be sent once this notice is lifted. For additional information, please call 913-715-8604.
