Splash pad closed after sewage backup


---- — TRAVERSE CITY — A sewage backup prompted city officials to close the Clinch Park splash pad.

The backup occurred Sunday morning and the splash pad was closed at about 10:30 a.m.

Grand Traverse County Health Department officials said it appeared some children were playing in the waterscape when it became necessary to close it.

The splash pad remained roped off with caution tape Monday morning.
