A Delaware city has launched an investigation into its wastewater plant after two equipment malfunctions weeks apart caused untreated water to flow into a river.

The Lewes Board of Public Works announced the investigation with the state Department of Natural Resources and the city government on Wednesday.

The board said all equipment at the Lewes Wastewater Treatment Plant will be inspected after filters and other parts were reported to have failed.

The Natural Resources Department said the first failure in December caused partially treated wastewater to be discharged into the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal for 10 days.

Problems with new equipment then caused a second discharge this month.
