The City of Coralville is asking residents in the Altanna Estates, Auburn Hills, Brown Deer, Dovetail, East Auburn Hills, Forest Edge Estates, Glenn Oaks, Highland Park, Nor Cor, Ollinger, Pine Hills, Pine Valley, Terra Ridge, Terra Woods, and Timber subdivisions to limit wastewater discharge until further notice due to a sewer line break on the north side of Coralville, which is causing a discharge of untreated wastewater into Muddy Creek.
The area requested to limit wastewater discharge is generally bounded by Forevergreen Road on the north to Dubuque Street on the east, Oakdale Road on the west, and Holiday Road east of 12th Avenue on the south. See the attached map at http://www.coralville.org/DocumentView.aspx?DID=545.
Coralville’s water quality is unaffected and remains safe to drink and use. The conservation effort is focused on limiting the amount of wastewater sent into sewer lines through toilets and drains. Residents in the affected area are asked to limit dish and laundry washing, take shorter showers, and reduce toilet flushing when possible.
Crews are assessing damage to the lift station to determine the extent and timing of repairs.
