An estimated 1,500 gallons of wastewater leaked from a pressurized main pipe Friday in De Pere, authorities said. The wastewater leak was reported around 8:50 a.m. in the vicinity of 9th and Cedar Streets, according to NEW Water, which is Green Bay's metropolitan sewerage district. Workers diverted the wastewater flow from the force main into a gravity sewer. The leak ceased around 9:30 a.m. Water notified the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources of the leak and is working to repair the force main.
