DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A broken sewer pipe under a street in on the east edge of Dubuque has caused a release of untreated wastewater into a storm sewer.

City public works officials say they discovered the wastewater leak Thursday afternoon.

Crews are working to identify the exact location of the broken pipe.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says people should keep children and pets away from the posted areas until repairs can be made and the sewage flow is stopped.
