MSD crews are repairing a broken sewer main that is leaking raw sewage into a creek that flows into the Missouri River.

The break was reported to MSD Tuesday. The main, which is near the intersection of Missouri Bottom Road and Dunn Road, has already leaked more than 240,000 gallons of sewage into the creek. MSD said it is trying to construct a dam and pump sewage back into the sewer.

MSD is warning anyone who comes in contact with the creek to immediately wash with soap and water. MSD does not believe the break is a threat to public health.
