Wastewater overflow at Cedarfield

By Judy Reed

An equipment malfunction caused a sewage overflow at the Cedarfield Community on 17 Mile Rd, just west of Meijer, last Friday, May 21.

According to Gerry Osborn, of Infrastructure Alternatives, the company that oversees the treatment of wastewater at the community, the decanter malfunctioned and the wastewater overflowed within the confines of the treatment area (within the fencing) so no homeowners were affected.

The overflow was discovered about 5 a.m. Friday morning. Osborn estimated the overflow at about 2,500 gallons. A crew was sent out immediately to repair the malfunction and they treated the area with hydrated lime. 

According to protocol, Osborn immediately reported the spill to EGLE (formerly DEQ); the Kent County Health Department; and The Post. “We are always going to do the right thing,” he said.
