CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati has issued a Wet Weather Sewer Overflow Warning for Cincinnati.
According to the service, when it rains or when water levels in area rivers and streams are elevated, the sewers in the older parts of the MSD Service Area can overflow--sending untreated rainwater and sewage into our streams.
Today, weather conditions indicate a strong possibility that overflows could occur.
They warn that after a rainstorm, you should avoid contact with streams in the combined sewer areas for at least 72 hours. You also should avoid contact with streams in the combined sewer areas until 72 hours after water levels in area rivers and streams have returned to normal elevation.
Contact with the water in these areas could be hazardous. Even in dry weather, it's best to avoid contact with urban streams and teach children to stay away from waterways in the combined sewer area.
