PLANO (1080 KRLD) - More wastewater is flowing in Plano after another sewage spill was found during the recent heavy rains. 

Plano city officials says this is now the fifth time that a sanitary overflow has happened at Gleneagles Golf course in west Plano. The other overflows there have happened in the last nine days, due to our unusually heavy rains.

City officials are working on expanding capacity at a life station, which would hold more wastewater and help solve the problem. However, they say ultimately this is due to the rain that has saturated the area.

Other sanitary overflows have happened in other parts of Plano and in other North Texas cities as well.
