CHICO, Calif. - City of Chico public work crews was up and at it early on Wednesday, making sure sewage gets to the wastewater treatment plant.

With power outages, crews have to hook up and start back-up generators at lift stations, which have no electricity.

This lift station services waste-water coming from the Chico airport.

"With the power outage, we've had to bring out a generator to keep this lift station going," City of Chico, Ann Defelice said. "So this is a sewage lift station, this is to make sure that what is in the well won't back up and spillover. We want to make sure that it
gets to the wastewater treatment plant," Defelice said.

They will do the same at several other lift stations around the city that currently without power, work crews said.
