Wastewater leaks into Floyd River

LE MARS, Iowa (KTIV) -- Wastewater has leaked into the Floyd River.

It's unclear how much of the wastewater got into the waterway, but the Iowa Department of Natural Resources has warned folks who get drinking water downstream of Le Mars about the leak.

It happened when an electrical panel and backup systems failed, in Le Mars. That allowed the wastewater to back up into a road ditch. Then, the wastewater flowed from the ditch into the river.
