City: Malfunctioning pressure transmitter caused water tower overflow

Posted: Updated:

Last night the water tower located at 74th Street and Genoa Avenue experienced an overflow which resulted in tower expelling water.

The condition was a result of a malfunctioned pressure transmitter that reads the water level in the tank. This caused pumps in the system to overfill the tank.

The water in the streets was a result of the designed overflow and not a leak in the tank. The pressure indicator has been repaired and the water was stopped last night shortly after staff noticed the tank was overflowing.
