Factory's levy collapse causes flood in Billings

The Associated Press

BILLINGS — Authorities in Billings say the side of a waste water pond used by Western Sugar Cooperative has collapsed, flooding the factory and some downtown streets.

Billings Police Sgt. Jason Gartner says the Sunday morning breach has caused deep water along State Avenue from Sugar Avenue to 31st Street, and that barricades have been set up.

Billings Fire Department Battalion Chief Ed Regele describes the breach as a catastrophic failure that drained the pond.

Regele says no homes have been flooded.
