Sparks Declares Emergency to Fix Broken Sewer Line

Posted: Updated:

SPARKS, Nev. (AP) -- Sparks City Council has declared a state of emergency to give officials spending authority to repair two sewage pipes that broke last week.

City officials tell the Reno Gazette-Journal no one was affected by the pipes that busted due to the cold weather.

The two 7-foot diameter pipes carry sewage to the regional treatment facility. No details yet on what happened but old infrastructure may be to blame.

Temporary measures were taken last week to fix the problem until more money could be cleared for a permanent repair.
