What is the city doing to correct the issue?
The city is working with a contractor to build a bypass system and reroute the sanitary sewer system around the damaged section. This bypass allows for city crews and contractors to make repairs to the system and the sewer line. In addition, water is being circulated through the lake system and the city is aerating the lake to pump oxygen back into the water. The city is working with the Trinity River Authority (TRA) and Dallas County Utility Reclamation District (DCURD) to monitor and continuously test the river and the lake for water quality.
