Sewage was leaking from a damaged sewer pipe near the west end of the bridge and draining into a sewer catch basin near the Macleay Park entrance. Maintenance crews completed temporary repairs today to stop the release. The city will design a project to permanently repair the damaged sewer pipe.

Maintenance crews have cleaned up the spill but warning signs are posted at the site of the leak. The public should use caution entering Macleay Park and walking on the Lower Macleay Trail near the NW Thurman Street Bridge.
