Northfield dumps 1 million gallons of wastewater into Cannon River

Dakota County closed the Lake Byllesby Regional Park beach Tuesday after the city of Northfield dumped 1 million gallons of treated and untreated wastewater into the Cannon River.

A PVC pipe break at Northfield’s treatment plant forced the city to discharge the wastewater between 1 and 4 a.m. Tuesday, according to a news release. Northfield warned the public to avoid direct contact with the Cannon River downstream of the city until 6 a.m. Friday.
