Metro Sewer Department warning residents of unsafe creeks

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The recent weather hasn't only rained on 4th of July plans, but has made area creeks unsafe as well.

 Due to the runoff from sewage pumping stations, creeks have turned into a health hazard. The Metro Sewer Department is warning residents the water is unsafe to wade, swim or fish in and could make you sick.

Pumping stations reroute water into the streams to keep from flooding and some of that displaced water is not clean.
