More wastewater overflows have occurred in Kansas City after blocked sewer lines caused untreated wastewater to overflow from blocked sanitary sewer lines. City officials say residents should not use a nearby lake for recreation until the spill from the overflow can be cleaned up, and completed tests results indicate the water body meets acceptable water quality standards.
