Wastewater spill clean-up at Canyon city park

By Sarah Seeley

Canyon, Texas - Thousands of gallons of wastewater in Canyon are still being cleaned up this evening.

The spill happened at the Canyon city wastewater collection point at Southeast Park.

Officials say the automatic electronic controls, call-out device and operator error are to blame for a wastewater overflow.

They say the wastewater ran through a drainage ditch and into the lower area of the park, but was completely contained and did not enter nearby Tierra Blanca creek.

The park will remain closed until the clean-up is complete.
