CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Officials say 150,000 gallons of wastewater entered the Cedar River after a power failure at a treatment plant in Cedar Falls.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the power failure was reported early Thursday morning. A backup generator for a specific disinfection system failed to start following the power failure.

The wastewater entered the river during a two-hour period. There are no reports of fish kill.

Power has been restored to the plant, and DNR officials are monitoring the situation. Additional information was not released.
