Bettendorf Water Main Break Causes Sewage Backup

Posted: Updated:

A water main break leaves some Bettendorf residents cleaning up sewage from their basements. 

The break near Woodland and Hillside spilled into the city's sewer system, flooding 28 homes with sewage until the water was shut off.

Clean up crews lined the streets while the water company fixed the water pipe.
One neighbor said they lost some irreplaceable items in their basement.

"If you were to ask my daughter, it's a pink blanket, but its just all the memories that we've accumulated throughout the years." Deanette Wilson said.

The water's been turned back on tonight and a boil order remains in effect for the next 24 hours. 

The city will reimburse homeowners for the sewage damages.
