Kitchener roundabout hit by sewage leak is set to reopen on Friday


KITCHENER – A busy roundabout in Kitchener, which had been closed due to a sewage leak, is scheduled to reopen on Friday morning.

Waterloo Region tweeted the following Thursday evening:

A sewer pipe at the Bridgeport pumping station erupted on Tuesday afternoon, forcing the Lancaster and Bridge Street roundabout to close.

People in the area at the time said sewage was sprayed through the asphalt.

Teams were called in to clean up the damage and repair the road.

The Environment Department said a team had been dispatched to determine whether the Grand River had been affected by the spill and determined that was not the case.

The Bridgeport pumping station remains out of service and liquid carriers collect the sewage and bring it to the sewage treatment plant.

Senior Project Manager Ryan Snider told CTV News they are still trying to determine the cause of the leak.

Officials first said repairs to the roundabout could take two weeks.
