    The City of Underwood, Iowa has shut down their main sewer lift station due to flash flooding in the area.

    Residents on the city water and sewer system are asked to conserve water and refrain from flushing toilets and dumping anything down drains to the extent practical during the shutdown.

    City crews and assisting agencies say they are working to secure the lift station from the encroaching floodwaters and will return the system to service as soon as possible.
