TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- The City of Topeka lifted a health advisory for Wanamaker Creek on Monday. The warning was issued last week after sewage was found to leaking into the north Topeka creek.

The City says it doesn't know how much sewage spilled.

The small creek stretches from east side of the Kansas Museum of History property to 6th and Wanamaker. The warning covered the creek from I-70 north to the Kansas River.

A break in a forcemain leaving Wanamaker sanitary pumping station allowed an unknown amount of sewage to leak into the creek, the City said.

As a precautionary measure, people, especially children were asked to avoid the creek.
