ST. PAUL, Neb. — Residents of St. Paul are being told to limit wastewater after a part of the city's sewage system collapses.
The city says a tank that gathers water from a group of pipes collapsed. Officials blame groundwater, say it softened land around the tank.
Crews have been working since then to get the problem fixed, but they've been having to pump some sewage into a nearby ditch.
Chuck Schmid with the city utilities department says residents need to limit the amount of water they flush from their houses by limiting dish and laundry washing.
The city says it will take several days to repair the damaged system.
