SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Heavy rain has caused a sanitary sewer overflow problem once again.

This time, the Central Weber Sewer Improvement District (CWSID) is experiencing the sewer overflow problem.

To prevent sewage from backing up into homes, the C-W-S-I-D is discharging untreated sewage into a ditch at 2700 North and 2600 West in Farr West. The ditch then discharges into the Weber River.

The C-W-S-I-D will continue to discharge the sewage until the overflow problem is under control. The public is being asked to stay away from the ditch and Weber River.

Yesterday, Garland City began discharging sewage into The Malad River at 1400 South because of the same problem.

The public is also being advised to stay away from that river as well.
