Town of Drumheller work crews were called out to the Newcastle Lift Station this morning to look in to a mechanical problem.
Early on the morning of December 18, there was a failure at the station which caused the system to be without power.
The problem was repaired within an hour of Town crews arriving on the scene.
The Town of Drumheller is advising residents in the Newcastle area to check their basements for any possible sewage backups.
Director of Infrastructure Services, Al Kendrick said, “Our staff is well prepared and trained to deal with these unexpected situations. The power was restored very quickly and the lift station is now operating normally.”
