KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A sewage overflow from a manhole on Saxonia Lane has dumped 18-hundred gallons of raw sewage onto the ground in a 120 foot area around the manhole.
It was reported late Saturday morning. Utility Crews were able to clear the blockage that caused the overflow by late Saturday afternoon.
They are advising everyone to avoid the area until the spill can be assessed and remediated in the next 48 hours.
