Today at approximately 1:30 p.m. a failure occurred in the south section of the Hesco wall. Water has filled in behind the floodwall and has overcome the Port of Burlington, Memorial Auditorium, and the Market Street Lift Station.
Crews have closed Front Street along with Washington Street, Jefferson Street, and Valley Street at Main Street.
With the loss of the Market Street Lift Station, sewage will begin to back up in the system. Please do not go into the floodwaters as there is a health risk from the sewage.
